F**k off and Die

This time round Crowd Talks, with Wieden and Kennedy presents ‘F**k Off and Die’, an evening debate on the creative merits and perils of online trolling. Artists and designers are embracing trolling - whether getting creative in their responses to trolling, or using it to call bullshit on the creative industries. The land of the trolls opens up an anarchic, entertaining and radical space for creatives to push the boundaries of taste and taboo - an essential function of the visual arts. But do we run the risk of mistaking abuse for constructive critique? 

On the panel:
— Alan Martin, science editor at Alphr
— Holly Brockwell, technology journalist and founder of Gadgette
— Simon Whybray, freelance designer
