WHAT IS IT?
FreedomX is a groundbreaking, multi-denominational event exploring the meaning of freedom and how faith impacts our understanding of being free spiritually, politically, socially and physically. With Hull's rich heritage of freedom, we'll be exploring big questions, such as: have we achieved freedom in this city? Nationally? Internationally? Who is oppressed? How can we change?
The line-up includes an internationally renowned professor, theologians and published authors. There'll be talks, workshops and a chance to respond. To keep the sense of freedom it will be a free, but pay as you feel event. So whoever you are, wherever you are, you are welcome.
Professor John Oldfield, Director of WISE and lead academic on the Stolen Lives Project will be speaking. See FreedomX website for details:
