CHALLENGES TO THE PUBLIC DISCOURSE – IS PUBLIC DISCOURSE BEING CONSTRAINED?
These past few years, we have witnessed the emergence of a “cancel culture”, whereby people or subjects that are deemed politically incorrect are no longer tolerated. Because of their inconvenient views, they are banned from their social or professional circles – whether online, in person or in the media.
WHAT ROLE CAN ART AND TECHNOLOGY PLAY IN SOLVING SOCIETAL ISSUES?
