Cardiff Philosophy Cafe – What is Community?

David Studdert and Chris Groves Tue 17 Oct, 8 - 10pm The Gate Arts Centre, Keppoch St, CF24 3JW Disability Access: Yes Family Friendly: No Community is back! After almost four decades of neo-liberalism and hyper individualism the cost is all around us, at work, in the street, and in the lack of care that politicians seem to manifest in their handling of our lives. And so suddenly politicians invoke community, nationalists long for it, people cling to it in unstable times, estate agents tout it, and as a solution or just a ‘feel good’ word, community takes on all kinds of forms depending on who is talking and who is listening. Join us at a special madeinroath Cardiff Philosophy cafe to ask: what do we want from communing? How can we build it, enhance it, maintain it? Has it really got any meaning beyond serving to pacify, sedate and reassure?
