LSE Arts public exhibition

Date: Monday 18 July - Thursday 25 August 2011
Time: Monday-Friday, 10am-8pm

This exhibition explores the role of restorative justice in promoting the human rights and welfare of survivors of genocide in Rwanda, featuring photographic, written and video testimony of survivors of genocide participating in, and benefiting from, restorative justice efforts. It illustrates a range of programs that NGOs offer in Rwanda and beyond to assist survivors of genocide and mass atrocity to access healthcare, housing, education, job training, psycho-social support services, and legal aid.

This exhibition is open to all, no ticket required. Visitors are welcome during weekdays (Monday - Friday) between 10am and 8pm. For any queries please email arts@lse.ac.uk| or call 0207 107 5342.

If you are interested in this topic you may also be interested in an event on Wednesday 14 September 2011, a screening of the film Coexist|, which explores the painful and personal stories of Rwandan genocide survivors as they are made to try to reconcile with perpetrators being released back into their communities from prison. 

From time to time there are changes to event details so we strongly recommend that if you plan to attend this event you check back on this listing on the day of the event.

Just economics and politics? Think again.  While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition, the LSE Literary Festival and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the  LSE Arts| website.
