About ‘Against the grain‘ event
New ideas are almost always in conflict with the mainstream. And the best ones change the world and become common currency until the next one comes along. During this stimulating evening guests were provoked by an audacious view on the banking crisis to an unorthodox poetry performance at the V&A with Professor Steve Bown, The Optimum Population Trust / Ben Broadbent, UK economist, Goldman Sachs / Margot Henderson, chef, Arnold & Henderson / Matt Parker, Queen Mary University of London and Sara Santos, Royal Institution of Great Britain, maths buskers / Kate Tempest, poet / chaired by Ben Lewis, art critic and film maker. This event took place at V&A, The Sackler Centre, Cromwell Road, London.
