Sergio Rossi

Winter Weekend 2017, 

The co-founder and Executive Vice Chairman of the Eden Project is branching his vision out across the globe to China, Australia and New Zealand, then to the Middle East and US. “Eden’s mission is to explore our dependence on the natural world, to use that understanding to excite people into delivering transformation where they live and to ask really serious questions about what a great future might look like for all of us. We want the new Edens to act as a heartbeat for those who feel the same way as we do and to develop in all of them the ability to tell the stories that inspire the people who are their constituency.”

Cambridge Series 16: Demsytifying the Social Robot

Hay Festival 2018, 

Sensationalist media coverage and sci-fi films often give a skewed impression of human-like and social robots, and this has left a major gap between the public perception of what they can do and their actual capabilities. The Senior Lecturer at University of Cambridge’s Computer Laboratory will give a more balanced view and outline how social robots can contribute to the public good.

Javier Cercas and Juan Gabriel Vasquez

Fictions: True Stories

Hay Festival 2018, 

A conversation about fiction and language with two of the greatest Spanish language writers. The Impostor is Cercas’ new novel about the notorious fake Holocaust survivor, Enric Marco. With profound compassion and lacerating honesty, Cercas takes the reader on a journey not only into one man’s gigantic lie, but also into the deepest, most flawed parts of our humanity. Cercas also publishes his book of essays on the novel The Blind Spot.  Gabriel Vasquez introduces his novel The Shape of the Ruins. It takes the form of personal and formal investigations into two political assassinations. Separated by more than 30 years, the two murders at first appear unconnected, but as the novel progresses Vásquez reveals how between them they contain the seeds of the violence that has bedevilled Colombia ever since. They talk, in English, to Daniel Hahn.

Millennium, The Year 1000

Hay Festival 2000, 
Mystery and magicians, monks, warriors and wandering merchants- people who feared an apocolypse and people who had no idea what year is was or what lay beyond the nearest valley. People felt they walked hand-in-hand with God, and envisaged him so literally that even Christians were sometimes buried with supplies for the journey to the new life in heaven.
