Con Jeanette Winterson, Frédéric Martel, Janne Teller y Peter Godwin

Xalapa 2012, 
Este año nuestro festival en Gales cumple 25 años y para celebrarlo hemos creado una selección de veinticinco preguntas que nos parecen relevantes para espectadores y artistas. En esta ocasión, los cuatro invitados deben responder las siguientes: ¿qué líderes, escritores, científi cos y artistas vivos están abriendo las puertas del futuro para la humanidad?; ¿entre el campo y ciudad, qué pueden aprender el uno del otro?; ¿qué texto ha cambiado más tu corazón y tu mente: una frase, la letra de una canción, una carta, un libro, un poema, una inscripción…? Moderado por Peter Florence, Director de Hay Festival.

El 25% de la población sufre cada año algún problema de salud mental: ¿tenemos que “tratar” la percepción de la enfermedad mental en quien la padece o en la sociedad? ¿Qué es lo último que has creado con tus manos?

Winging It

Hay Festival 2018, 

Joining the parenting club in our thirties and beyond means that we are spinning an extraordinary amount of plates, often including a career at its peak. Most of us co-parent or fly solo in the true sense of the word, relying solely on our partners and/or friends when, more often than not, extended family are too far away to help on a regular basis. Our parents could look to their parents for the usual guidance and extra support, but our situation is new, modern and unique. We are winging it! The One Show star shares what happens when the best thing ever comes later than planned...
