Festival 2020

Like so many other events this spring the Festival of Arguments 2020 has had to be postponed. But we will be back, bigger and better, next year! In the meantime we are delighted to bring you online events in the Thinking Out Loud series, and other events will be added here over time. You can keep in touch by joining the Festival's mailing list and following us on Facebook and Twitter.

How to get involved

The Oxford Uehiro Centre and colleagues explore how to think critically about life through a public festival of practical ethics. The Festival of Arguments is free to take part in, and focusses on exploring today’s most pressing ethical dilemmas. Our next festival week is scheduled for 2021, but in the meantime you can take part in online events through this page.

If you’re interested in attending events please keep an eye on this page, or sign up for our mailing list. All feedback is gratefully received by email.

If you’re interested in putting on an event as part of the festival next year, please contact the festival admin.
