The Knowledge Quarter’s 2019 conference “The Future of Knowledge: Think Better. Think Together.” will explore real-world strategies for democratising, decolonising, demystifying and disseminating knowledge. With speakers, panels and workshops from science, technology, the media, politics, arts and culture, this conference provides a unique opportunity for Knowledge Quarter partners and friends to collaborate and educate, forging lasting connections to push towards a bright future for knowledge.

The 2019 programme includes:

  • Keynote addresses including from British space scientist, science educator, UCL Honorary Research Associate and BBC Sky at Night presenter Maggie Aderin-Pocock, with further names to be announced.
