The Future for West Yorkshire’s Regional Democracy brings together artists, musicians and social and political scientists to think about The Future of West Yorkshire.
The symposium will consist of the following four panel sessions:
- Space and Governance: What form should regional devolution to West Yorkshire take?
- West Yorkshire youth: How might they contribute to regional democracy?
- The right to the riding; who decides what happens in West Yorkshire / how can we create wider participation?
- Is West Yorkshire a Colony of London?
