Recorded in the Concert Hall, as part of ANTIDOTE 2018

After Chelsea Manning’s 2017 release from military prison, she became one of the world’s most prominent activists around areas of data privacy, surveillance and trans politics. Meet this truly extraordinary change maker at the height of her power, as part of ANTIDOTE 2018.
