Truth to Power Cafe

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”97488″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]Truth to Power Café begins an exploration into the power of free speech and political activism as participants have five minutes to speak truth to power before a live audience by responding to the question: ‘Who has power over you and what do you want to say to them?’

Speaking ‘truth to power’ has its origins in anti-war pacifism, but in this era of post-truth and fake-news is widely accepted to mean saying something to those in authority or position of trust who don’t want to hear it.

We’re inviting people of all ages, beliefs, and backgrounds to take part and share your truth to power. It can be directed at your parents, a sibling, a politician, lover, landlord, neighbour, religious leader, boss, banker… quite simply, anything or anyone that holds power over you. It’s time to tell them the truth before it’s too late.


‘Truth to Power Café’ tells it like it is. Take part, I did. Or just turn up for inspiration and empowerment’. Peter Tatchell, International Human Rights Activist

‘Being part of the Café was a truly empowering experience’. Phoebe Thomas Weekes, student and participant

’Truth to Power Cafe’ is a new theatre work forming part of an international art project inspired by the political and philosophical beliefs of Harold Pinter and his Hackney Gang. For more information visit London Artists Projects.
