POLITICAL EVENTS LIKE YOU'VE NEVER SEEN THEM BEFORE...
The World Transformed organises political events. But they don't look like any you've seen before. We mix big names with the most inspiring grassroots voices. We tackle topics others overlook. We offer free tickets so that anybody can attend. And we bring together art, music and design to build a unique and exciting atmosphere. We care about creating experiences that appeal to people outside of the political bubble.
A LITTLE HISTORY
The World Transformed grew out of Momentum, the social movement formed in the wake of Jeremy Corbyn’s 2015 leadership campaign. Our first event was #TWT2016 - a four day festival of politics, art, music and culture that took place alongside the Labour Party Conference in Liverpool, 2016.Think of it as like the Edinburgh Fringe, only more political and even more fun.
We think it went pretty well. Over 5000 people attended more than 150 workshops, talks, gigs and exhibitions, making it the largest event that the Labour Party Conference’s fringe has ever seen. We also had a great reception from attendees, Labour MPs and from journalists across the entire political spectrum. John Harris, writing for the Guardian, even called us "the future of the Labour party".
In 2017, our festival in Brighton was even bigger and better - spread across eleven different venues, with more than thirty Labour MPs and headline speakers like Naomi Klein, Russell Brand and David Harvey
