Event details

Does our stuff make us happy, or can we be more fulfilled with less? Six inspiring and thought provoking evenings explore this theme, with speakers from different fields in a relaxed cafe environment at Winchester Discovery Centre.

This illustrated talk presents three contemporary visions of luxury in an era of austerity: luxury as something desirable, luxury as something wicked, and luxury as something ecological, even environmentally friendly.

Which idea of luxury will you choose?
