Festival of Ideas
The 2014 Festival of Ideas will run from 12 - 22 June.
Initiated in 2011 by the University of York working in association with the NCEM, York Theatre Royal and Yorkshire Museums Trust, the 2014 festival now embraces over 120 events focusing on the theme of Order and Chaos.
Events at the NCEM include Sara Spade and the Noisy Boys (Sat 14 June) in a glorious celebration of WW1 songs familiar to soldiers and their families across the ages; Professor David Howard talks about order and chaos and music (Mon 16 June); curator Lara Goodband of York Curiouser introduces visual artist Jacques Nimski as he talks about his installation in the grounds of St Margaret's Church - home to the NCEM (Tues 17 June) more about the project here - and local historian Christopher Green works with Robert Hollingworth and the University of York's 24 on a production commemorating the men of Walmgate who went to war between 1914-18 and who never returned home.
