Magna Carta Manifesto discussion workshop
A great evening’s discussion was held on Saturday 20 June in Dolerw Park, Newtown at the site of Owen Griffith‘s new work Becoming Garden. Writers, activists and historians, Peter Linebaugh and Iain Boal spoke in-conversation with Owen setting the artwork in context, exploring the wider issues of education, Robert Owen and the birth of the socialist movement, common land, capitalism to name a few. Iain and Peter extended their anti-austerity Celtic tour to join us for this special one off event, where they have been speaking about Magna Carta, the Commons, and the future of the UK post Scottish referendum. 2015 is the 800th year anniversary of the Magna Carta.
