The Forgiveness Project: A discussion about forgiveness, reconciliation and conflict resolution.
Tue 24 Jun 2014
Time: 11.30am - 12.30pm
The Wiener Library is delighted to welcome Marina Cantacuzino to speak about the charity she founded called The Forgiveness Project. Marina began an initiative in 2003 in response to the imminent invasion of Iraq. She embarked on a personal project collecting stories of people who had lived through violence, tragedy or injustice and sought forgiveness/reconciliation rather than revenge. The resulting exhibition ‘The F Word’ led to Marina founding a charity called The Forgiveness Project. Crucial to the ethos of The Forgiveness Project is that it explores rather than propagates forgiveness and reflects the stories of real people rather than the opinions of experts. The charity has no political or religious affiliations.
Marina will be speaking about her own experiences and motivations behind The Forgiveness Project. The talk will be followed by a discussion with Marina about forgiveness, reconciliation and conflict resolution.
All visitors are invited to attend an optional behind-the-scenes tour of the Wiener Library’s exhibition and archives after the talk at 1pm.
Tea, coffee and biscuits provided.
