SUNDAY FRINGE: WRITING TO MAKE A CHANGE

Venue
Kadett / Space Academy
Time
10:00 am - 03:30 pm

How can you make a difference in this crazy world? Is it with grand gestures or small incremental steps? Writing news articles, blog posts, letters to your local MP, or persuasive tweets? Marianne Elliott of ActionStation has run a number of people-powered campaigns that have affected real change; Toby Morris’sPencilsword comics about social issues have gone viral around the world; and Morgan Godfery is a wise new voice in political commentary. They talk with RDU’s James Dann.
