Roman Krznaric at the Arts Centre

On the curious histories of how we live
Arts Centre
Friday 18 May 2012
How can we improve the quality of our lives? Should we turn to philosophers, health gurus, educationists, financial advisers, religion, or the latest experiments of psychologists?
Or should we simply look at history: for job satisfaction, the industrial revolution; for bringing up children, the Ming Dynasty; and for relationships, Ancient Greece?
Cultural historian, adviser to the UN, and faculty member of Alain de Botton’s School of Life, Roman Krznaric offers direct solutions to modern dilemmas in his new book The Wonderbox.
It is full of stories and ideas that show how the past can shine a light on how to live well, today! In the second part of the evening, Roman Krznaric will be a key adjudicator and sit back with the rest of us to enjoy this year’s SWINDON THINK SLAM!
Doors: 6.30pm
Tickets: £7, Concessions £6, Multi Book £6
