This public lecture from Prof John Roberts will address the core questions of democracy, collaboration, and autonomy and will focus on two areas in particular: the relationship between socially engaged art and theatre and dramaturgy, and more broadly – philosophically - the relationship between democracy, the in-common, and freedom.
