EVENT: ‘The Meeting’ – Screening and Q&A

This is the first ever screening of The Meeting: finding humanity through restorative justice. Free entry, but due to limited seating booking is required – BOOK NOW.

Shot in HMP Featherstone, this raw and stirring short documentary shows how restorative justice can restore humanity and provide resolution for victims, offenders and society as a whole.

It took six years for Shad Ali to finally get the chance to meet his attacker Glenn. After working in prisons with The Forgiveness Project’s RESTORE programme, Shad knew that the story of his own journey could be of immense value to people involved in the criminal justice system. Working in conjunction with The Forgiveness Project and with the agreement of Glenn, Shad allowed the cameras to film the meeting to highlight the value of this restorative process.

The Meeting was produced by The Forgiveness Project & Shad Ali and is a rare opportunity to witness the real power of restorative justice introducing an element of humanity into a situation which had dehumanised both attacker and victim.

There will be a Q&A session after the screening with Shad and Marina Cantacuzino, Founder of The Forgiveness Project – BOOK NOW.

This event is being held as part of a week of events to celebrate the launch of our new exhibition, The F Word: stories that transform at gallery@oxo from 8 – 12 March 2017.
