Darren McGarvey: Re-imagining Beveridge

About Darren McGarvey: Re-imagining Beveridge

Darren McGarvey (aka Loki), has experienced poverty and its devastating effects first-hand. He knows why people from deprived communities all around Britain feel angry and unheard.

His book Poverty Safari won The Orwell Prize for Books 2018, and at this special event he examines the factors keeping people locked in poverty today.

Over 75 years on from the Liberal economist William Beveridge’s influential proposals to reform social welfare, what are the ‘Giant Evils’ of our modern society?

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Darren McGarvey: Re-imagining Beveridge are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
