Smashing Times are presenting a Creative Arts, Human Rights and Peace Symposium at the Island Arts Centre in Lisburn. It will celebrate the role of the arts in promoting equality, human rights and positive community relations.
The symposium features a performance of At Summer’s End by Féilim James, from The Woman is Present: Women’s Stories of WWII, as well as a film screening taken from the television documentary Stories from the Shadows directed by Mary Moynihan and Mark Quinn, produced by Smashing Times and High Wire.
The aim of the symposium is to bring diverse communities together from a cross-border and inter-community perspective to explore how to acknowledge the experiences of diverse groups in a post-conflict society, and ways forward for building a sustained peace and a shared future based on equality for all. In addition to the performance and film screening, the symposium features workshops and presentations with artists and guest speakers Dr Stephen Herron, William Caughey and Fiona Bawn Thompson.
Location: Island Arts Centre, Lagan Valley Island, Lisburn, BT27 4RL
Date: 17 October 2019
