This is a Festival of Ideas Online event and will take place on our Crowdcast platform. It will also be live-streamed to Facebook. You can find out more about how this works in our blog.

Current politics and policy are preoccupied with dealing with the pandemic and Brexit is looming. What about the longer-term future of the city? Bristol’s four MPs – Thangam Debbonaire, Darren Jones, Kerry McCarthy and Karin Smyth – join us to discuss social care; migration and immigration; the future economy in a developing time of automation; devolution and where it should go next; the housing crisis; growing child poverty and more. We’ll be putting your questions to them as well. Chaired by Festival of Ideas director Andrew Kelly.

This is part of our Future of Democracy series which is taking place all year and will culminate in a constitutional convention, currently scheduled for November 2020.

Crowdcast allows you to use one login for all of your events. In your profile you can access all of your upcoming events. You can personalise your profile with a picture and brief bio.

Interacting at the event

Polls are located in a tab just below the video feed. Some events may add a poll prior to the event or during a live session, so be sure to check this area periodically.

Questions & Answers are also in a tab just below the video feed. This is where you can submit any questions or leave a comment on a question. Once the host has answered the question, you will be able to view it in the answered tab. You can also vote on questions that others have submitted if you would like to see them answered.

Chat is located on the right hand side of the video feed. This is a great place to say hello and introduce yourself before the event goes live. Chat lets you directly communicate with the host and other attendees before, during, and after an event.
