Malvern Festival of Ideas is a multidisciplinary festival of ideas that takes place in the beautiful location of Malvern, Worcestershire. It is (mainly) a single-tracked series of talks, discussion and activities on a theme that takes place over a weekend at the beginning of March. Opportunities are provided for participants to follow up their own interests within the overall theme.
The title for 2024 is Telling Tales which explores the power of storytelling, both in the narratives themselves but also in the ideas they convey. Stories have the remarkable ability to introduce, explore, and propagate ideas in a compelling and impactful way. We hear from individuals who have a powerful personal story to tell as well as storytellers who explore thought-provoking themes that tackle societal issues and examine the human condition. We ask What is your story? What are the ideas you wish to convey to the world?
