Free World Transformed Festival

As part of the Labour Party Conference fringe, Liverpool is will play host to the World Transformed Festival – four days of film, art, music and culture.

With over 150 hours of workshops, talks, gigs, film screenings, art exhibitions, book launches, children’s activities, the Festival aims to inspire all to take part in a new type of politics.

Leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, said in a promotional video for the festival: “I’m going to be there, because I want to see a world transformed. All those people, with all those ideas, ambitions and energy, are going to be there as well. Come along and join us – you’ll have a great experience… Doing things together benefits us all, educates us all, makes us strong, and does change the world.”

The fringe will be supported by contributors including film-maker Ken Loach, Diane Abbott MP, Clive Lewis MP, Owen Jones, Ann Pettifor, Ed Hall, John McDonnell MP, artists the Chapman Brothers and Arabella Dorman.

Deborah Hermanns, an organiser of the event, said: “With the inspiration of art, film and music, The World Transformed is the opportunity for us all to come together to be free to imagine a better future … and Liverpool is the ideal city to host the event. The event is free for all and accessible by providing free space, travel and accommodation for grassroots groups who would never be able to afford to exhibit at Labour Conference.”
