A week after the Scottish referendum on independence, are we still feeling politically engaged? Or has the result turned some of us off for good?

Oliver Escobar, an expert in participatory democracy, reckons political disengagement is not inevitable after September 2014. Hear his views on how all of us can remain politically active – and how politicians can activate us. You’ll have a chance to have your say or, equally, you can just digest the discussion.

Hosted in partnership with the Edinburgh Active Citizenship Group (, this event is part of a special run of the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas taking place as part of Explorathon 2014 ( ). The series brings you debate, discussion and discourse in the company of some of the fiercest intellects Scotland has to offer. It has recently completed its second Edinburgh Fringe run.
