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 anybody can attend. We incorporate art, music and design in a way that creates a buzz. We care about creating experiences that appeal to people outside of the political bubble.A Little HistoryThe World Transformed grew out of Momentum, the social movement formed after the election of Jeremy Corbyn. 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.We think it went pretty well. Over 5000 people attended more than 150 workshops, talks, gigs and exhibitions, making it the largest fringe event ever. We also got a great reception from attendees, Labour MPs and the press. John Harris, writing for the Guardian, even called us "the future of the Labour party".Our Plans2017 is a critical year. Across the globe we're seeing the rise of the far right and a collapse of the centre ground. Now is the time for progressives to build a compelling narrative. Now is the time to promote exciting, future oriented political ideas.
With this in mind, we are planning two major projects for 2017 - Take Back Control and TWT2017.Take Back Control is a series of events happening in local communities across the UK, timed to coincide with the triggering of Article 50 in March. These collaboratively organized events will bring together Remain and Leave voters, open up the Brexit negotiations and discuss how we can take back control from economic elites and establishment politicians.TWT2017 will be a week long, multi-venue festival of politics, art, music and culture alongside the Labour Party Conference in Brighton, September 2017. Think of it as like Edinburgh Fringe, only more political and even more fun.
