About Café Culture – Has the Tide Turned?

Café Culture welcomes you to café-style thoughtful public discussions on culture, politics, philosophy and science. Open to all, no need to book (unless otherwise stated), no prior knowledge needed, just a like-minded desire for convivial and lively banter in an inclusive, welcoming setting.

Has the Tide Turned?

Is economic inequality now falling: worldwide, in the UK, and in this city? Join Prof Danny Dorling, British social geographer and Halford Mackinder, Professor of Geography, University of Oxford, who will explore what survey and taxation evidence currently shows us. Danny will consider how sure we can be that we have begun to again control the super-rich. He will also ask what the benefits of living in a more equal society might be.
