SALON: FEMINISM, PUNK ROCK AND PUBLIC SERVICES

Join us for an evening of sexual politics, digital technologies, making noise, making art, the costs of labour and more. Presentations by two guest speakers will be followed by a free flow discussion.


Rebecca Kemp is a freelance digital director. She works with technology to make public services better.

She was previously the Digital Director at Public Health England and Head of Policy at the Government Digital Service. Rebecca is passionate about using feminism, technology and user-centred design to make society fairer. Her proudest achievement is a policy that commits the government to supporting people who can’t use the internet, so they can access services and get digital skills.
