Protest and Performance Week @WarwickUni

Sad I can’t make this, shared in case others can:

Protest and Performance Week will take place on campus in week 10, from Monday 14th – Thursday 17th March 2016. It includes film, comedy, theatre and panel discussions. All events are free (except the film – reduced price tickets available) and open to everyone. You need to register to reserve a place. Highlights include:

  • Kate Smurthwaite (award winning comedian and activist) with her new show on freedom of speech – ‘The Wrong Sort of Feminist’.
  • ‘We Are Many’ – The acclaimed story of the biggest demonstration in human history, including Q & A with the film’s director, Amir Amirani.
  • Presentations and panel discussions from academics and students discussing protests at Warwick University, and elsewhere.
  • Seasoned campaigners and journalists talking on the theme of ‘How do we make our voices heard?’ (including Emily Scurrah from 38 Degrees).
  • To Know How You Stand – The IATL student ensemble explore the university as a space of protest.

This programme of events has been created through a collaboration of Warwick staff and studentsunder the auspices of Warwick’s Centre for Human Rights in Practice, and is supported by IATL. It is happening in conjunction with a special issue of Lacuna Magazine on the theme of protest. Many ‘Protest and Performance Week’ speakers are appearing in Lacuna Magazine now, and over the next couple of weeks.
