Improvising: from concept to screen (Artists' Talk – Thursday 9 May)

Caglar Kimyoncu talks about his ‘no-script’ approach to creating and directing COnscription. Together with Markus A. Ljungberg, Director of Photography, and Haydar Koyel, Actor, they explore the dynamics of improvisation-based work as used in COnscription, and the challenges and opportunities this presented. Join them on their personal journeys to alternative ways of working, creating art and making it happen.

Times: 6:00pm– 8.00pm

(The exhibition will be open from 11am and till 9pm, so come in earlier or stay later if you want!)

Conscientious Objection: from personal right to universal responsibility (Panel Discussion – Wednesday 15 May)

Coinciding with the International Conscientious Objectors Day, and in conjunction with COnscription, the event sets out to reveal some of the issues which don't currently have the same international profile as other human rights questions. Representatives from high profile anti-war organisations and individuals share their expertise and experiences, exploring themes including individual rights versus state coercion, art and politics and the relevance of non-violent strategies in a post 9-11 world.

        Albert Beale, Peace Pledge Union
        Chris Nineham, founder of the Stop the War Coalition
        Derek Brett, International Fellowship Of Reconciliation (IFOR), Main Representative to the UN, Geneva
