Last year’s festival explored the themes of socialist strategy and demands for the post-coronavirus era, with sessions on topics such as the future of work and trade union organising, or tackling the crises in care, climate and housing. In addition, the programme included workshops on socially distant organising, staying safe online, and countering far-right radicalisation in digital spaces. In a year which saw worldwide Black Lives Matter protests, there was a key focus on anti-racism, as well as discussions about the future of the Labour left and its role under Keir Starmer’s leadership.
