Journey to Justice - taster and information session
Sat 29 October 2016, 14:00 – 17:00 BST
Help us bring Journey to Justice to BRISTOL
This is a partnership between Jounrney to Justice, the University of the West of England and Bristol Cathedral
The Journey to Justice mobile exhibition tells extraordinary stories of ordinary men, women and children involved in the US civil rights movement and links that universal history to UK struggles for freedom. Using photography, text, audio-visual features, poetry, music and interactive installations, the exhibition explores the question, ‘What leads people to be active in human rights campaigns of all types?’
As the exhibition travels around the UK, we partner with local communities to run a programme of arts, music and education events, telling local stories of fighting for freedom, equality and human rights. We show how change for social justice can happen led by ‘people like us’.
The exhibition will come to Bristol in October 2017. In preperation, we would like to invite anyone interested to join us for a free taster session hosted by Journey to Justice and Bristol Cathedral.
Saturday 29 October 2pm-5pm
Bristol Cathedral, College Green BS1 5TJ
The taster session is designed to introduce the activities, projects and approach of Journey to Justice, and to seek your input and help in bringing the exhibition programme to Bristol, to include uncovering and celebrating Bristol city’s long history of social activism.
Martin Spafford and Parul Motin from Journey to Justice who between them have extensive experience in using the arts to involve marginalised young people will be attending. For more information on Journey to Justice please visit the website http://journeytojustice.org.uk/
