The Fragility of Truth

What: Live workshops designed to start a dialogue about conspiracy theories, helping people to place them in a context.

Why: In a period of increasing polarisation towards facts in media and institutions, it is easy to get stuck in discussions about what is true or not true. Yet, by understanding what conspiracy theories are and how they work, it is easier to know what to make of them.

How: The workshops encourage people to ask questions and recognise a landscape where different belief systems exist. This is a more constructive way of approaching the idea of ‘truth’, Tiiu Meiner believes.
