Winter is coming... bring it on!
Come join us for our last assembly of 2016, a week before the Winter Solstice, as we explore how we can not only survive but embrace this trickiest of seasons...
Our main speaker will be British-Iranian performance artist and rabble rouser Sara Zaltash who will be sharing an expanded personal reading of Christina Rossetti's Christmas poem,'In the Bleak Midwinter', and how being the only Muslim in a Catholic school helped her find resilience and sweetness on even the frostiest, windiest, moaniest mornings.
"Zaltash is electrifying... See her if you can." Adrian Searle - The Guardian, 2015.
We'll also have a performance (TBC) and a 'This Much I Know' segment from East End community member Eugina Oleinikova, originally from Latvia, who will be talking about the challenges of spending Christmas away from home, and how Latvians survive winter (mostly involves vodka).
Plus the usual appropriately themed singalong classics with the legendary East End house band, a guided moment of reflection, and big / small talk over hot drinks and snacks after.
