- -Elisabeth-Herz-Kremenak-SaalInteractiveCome closer! Speakers’ Corner! How can we visualise free speech? Students from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London will attempt to create the atmosphere of Speakers’ Corner, which has been a traditional place of public debate since the mid-nineteenth century. Even now, anyone can speak on any topic at Hyde Park in London without any notice, so long as the police deem the speech to fall within the scope of the law. Come closer and listen to Nancy Reagan’s speech 'Just Say No!', Elie Wiesel’s 'The Perils of Indifference' and Nellie McClung’s 'Should Men Vote?'. Following these historical speeches, the entire team of the European Forum Alpbach welcomes all participants and scholarship holders to mark the start of this year’s 'Festival of Ideas'.
