In a contemporary world of fake news, orchestrated social media presence, individual-specific advertising and advanced editing software, we need to think more carefully about what we are told, when and by who.

This year, the Difference Festival focuses on the term ‘truth’. We will explore this term in its entirety via a diverse programme of events curated by academic staff from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

The University of Westminster has always been intent on assisting the public on their pursuit of truth. In 1838, The Polytechnic Institution at Regent Street was created as place for the public to explore new ideas, discover new inventions, acquire new knowledge and learn new skills. We strive to continue those ambitions and to make a difference, embodying the link between theory and practice and changing the world for good. 

Join us as we navigate the complexity of modern truth via workshops, discussions, activities and talks.
