What does it mean to be Human?  is an in-person event being held in Winchester on Saturday 16 March 2024 focusing on modern medical ethics and social care.

The event has been crafted by the Portsmouth Diocese’s Dialogue with Cultural Sectors Team, members of whom work across a range of fields (including education, medicine, business, the law and politics) and who seek to bring the Catholic tradition into critical conversations with the thinking and philosophy behind these professional sectors.

Over the past couple of years the team have successfully organised two symposia featuring key note addresses, workshops and critical discussions – Science and Religion featured celebrity scientist and professor, Dr Brian Cox and Fr Andrew Pinsent, Catholic priest and CERN physicist. Politics and Religion, featured Jacob Rees-Mogg MP, Ruth Kelly MP and Lord David Alton.

The Symposium will feature presentations from well-known experts and is led by David Wells, the popular motivational speaker. It is open to people of all faiths and none, specialist and lay, to students and to anyone with an interest in medical and social care.

The event will run from 10am to 4.15pm at The Arc, Jewry Street, Winchester SO23 8SB

Tickets cost £20, including sandwiches and refreshments, and are available on-line via Eventbrite here
