An Inclusive & Just Society

Jul 19, 2010 · Greater London, United Kingdom

We would like to invite you to our meetup at the House of Commons on July 19th on “A Just & Inclusive Society.” In GlobalNet21, We are developing some meetups, webinars and additional material on disability and inclusion. To start this off we are holding the meeting in the House of Commons to raise questions about what a just society is and how can we ensure inclusion for all - for people whatever their gender, race, disability or class. This should be quite a unique and amazing event. What makes this special is that Paul Morrell, Director of Education & Outreach from Chickenshed (the theatre company that works with children both able and disabled) will lead us through two short performances (about 20 minutes in total) from the theatre company. One performance will look at social alienation and knife crime and the other will look at how we view people and value them. Both will raise questions about how we create a just and inclusive society for us all. Following the performances then there will be a general discussion with questions that includes the audience and those from Chickenshed and also David Burrowes the MP for Enfield Southgate who has been appointed Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to Ministers in the Cabinet Office responsible for giving policy advice to the Prime Minister. David is hosting the meeting for us. We hope to tackle some fundamental questions that we are taking forward in some later mini meetups such as - how do we create an inclusive society where those who are marginalized because of their physical disability, their social alienation or their lack of income are included? Is a Just Society one that actively works towards inclusion and how can this be done? What makes this poignant is that Crime of the Century is a physical dance theatre piece “that follows the stark journey, from the build up to the terrible consequences, of one fatal moment. Co-written and directed by David Carey and Christine Niering, the moving piece came about after a sequence of young men connected to Chickenshed were tragically murdered in knife attacks. David Carey will be at the meeting. Book early as this should be a really special event. This meeting is part of a lottery funded project
