Hilary Lawson on Music Festivals

“Hundreds of the world’s leading thinkers and thousands of inquisitive minds are decamping to Hay-on-Wye. They’re attending for HowTheLightGetsIn, the philosophy and music festival organized by the Institute of Art and Ideas. Our aim is simple: to free philosophy from the shackles of the academy, to remind people of its relevance and uses and to introduce it in its broadest forms to new audiences. We want to create a space where real human interaction can take place; a space whether emerging thinkers are offered a platform alongside more established names from across the disciplines; where ideas, not celebrity, is the prerequisite for participation.”
