Arts & Science Festival 2014

In response to the riots of August 2011, Bernadette Russell committed to be kind to a stranger every single day for a year. Her experiences have recently been turned into multi-media theatre show which tells the heartbreaking, surprising and challenging stories of that year, which began with burning buildings and ended with the flame of the Olympic torch, against a global backdrop of social unrest and economic crisis.

Bernadette will describe her experiences and share her motivations in an inspiring talk. This will be followed by a panel discussion including academics from the School of Philosophy, Theology and Religion who will attempt to answer the question: can kindness change the world?

This event is presented as part of Arts & Science Festival 2014, a week-long celebration of ideas, research and collaboration across campus. For details of the full programme, visit:
