The Hackney Debate. Social Media: Blessing or Curse

The popular Hackney Debate is returning to St. Peter's Church for the fifth time.

Chaired by the BBC's George Alagiah, the Hackney Debates have proven a vital addition to De Beauvoir's calendar of events. 

The theme this time is the impact of social media on society. Do services such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have a positive or negative effect?

Speaking in the debate will be:
Dr. Paolo Gerbaudo, Lecturer in Digital Culture and Society at King's College,
Olivia Solon, Associate Editor of Wired magazine,
Caroline Criado-Perez, Journalist and Feminist Campaigner,
Stephen Foster, Principal of the Bridge Academy.

The debate is promoted by St. Peter's Community Partnership and takes place at St Peter’s Church, Northchurch Terrace, N1 4DA on Friday 29th November at 7.30pm.

Admission is free, so please arrive early for seats, and there will be a paid bar.
