3rd March 2020 | Covent Garden
Join us for the biggest night of the Salon year. Established in 2013, Salon London's annual Transmission Prize rewards writers, speakers, scientists, philosophers and activists for their groundbreaking ideas and the way they communicate them.
Previous winners include joint 2019 winners, Jamie Bartlett and Carl Miller for their work on our relationship with technology and their ability to deliver new ideas to people in the way they want it and in the places they want it; economist Kate Raworth for her radical rewrite of 200 years of theory, Doughnut Economics; Theodore Zeldin for his book, The Hidden Pleasures of Life; joint 2015 winners Margaret Heffernan for A Bigger Prize, and Dr Julian Baggini for The Virtues of the Table; writer and broadcaster Claudia Hammond for her psychological exploration of time, and Professor David Nutt for his honest look at the harm of all drugs in Drugs - Without the Hot Air: Minimising the Harms of Legal and Illegal Drugs.
Transmission is Salon's celebration of the incredible work that our speakers do to get their incredible work to audiences. Through our winners, we can engage with ideas at a deeper level and maybe even change the world.
This year’s shortlist will be announced Tuesday 21 Feb 2020.
