EVENT: Long Shadows of the Past and Surviving Intergenerational Trauma – 18 March 2016

9We are delighted that a special Forgiveness Conversation is going to be held in Bristol as part of the Festival of Ideas.

Dr Duncan Morrow, Hanneke Coates, Angela Findlay and Marian Liebmann explore the impact of trauma and war on their own families and communities. Ranging over war crimes and conflicts in Northern Ireland, Indonesia and Germany, they consider what it takes for people to take the journey from dehumanisation to re-humanisation.

This is one of the events in a special weekend of activity looking at endings and beginnings (a theme which will also be part of other festival events in 2016). It is part of Bristol800: a programme throughout 2016 marking significant anniversaries in the city and what they mean for Bristol now and into the future. Bristol800 is an initiative of Bristol Cultural Development Partnership (Arts Council England, Bristol City Council and Business West).

The event is taking place in the Watershed from 8pm -9.30pm. Tickets are £9 / £8 concs.
