Young People’s Festival of Ideas is a series of debates on critical issues affecting young people today.

Brought to you by a partnership between Bristol Festival of Ideas, Arnolfini and Rising Arts Agency who work with a group of young people to curate and create events that encourage debate, ideas, laughter and lots of free thinking.

Events are open to all but we always make sure that tickets to under 25s are FREE.

Young people are at the core of the events, organising and planning but also participating as panellists, performers and audience members.
