An evening of theatre and discussion on the refugee crisis.
The refugee crisis is the largest humanitarian crisis of our age, join us for an evening of theatre and discussion on this vital subject.
The evening will start with a performance from Many Voices drama workshops, run by Attic Theatre Company and led by Rachael Black and Claire Minnitt. They work with young immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers in Merton and the short performance the group are sharing has been authored by the young people with the assistance of their group leaders.
The second part of the evening will be Scriptural Reasoning, a practice of inter-faith reading where small groups of Jews, Christians and Muslims gather together to read short passages from their scriptures.
Scriptural Reasoning is not about seeking agreement, but rather increasing understanding about one another’s traditions and deeper exploration of the texts and their possible interpretations across faith boundaries.
We will be hearing from Nadiya Takolia (Cambridge Inter-faith Programme), Rabbi Danny Rich (Senior Rabbi & Chief Executive of Liberal Judaism, co-chair of the National Refugees Welcome Board) & Nick Coke (National Refugee Coordinator for The Salvation Army).
Brought to you in collaboration with Attic Theatre Company, Cambridge Inter-faith Programme and Merton Citizens UK.
