Welcome back to Imagination: Scotland's Festival of Ideas at The Glad Cafe after their extraordinarly successful events hosted last year in the lead up to and aftermath of the independence referendum.
The Scottish election is like no other anyone has ever experienced. It has challenged politicians, media and onlookers to think anew about Scotland and politics after the indyref. Join us just after the vote to make sense of it all. Where is Scotland going? What will the SNP do at Westminster? And what is the future of Labour? Most importantly, what does this all mean for the state of politics and democracy?
