Eva Koch Part 2: ‘Our Friends and Other Animals’ and Lessons from Friends against Nuclear Weapons
27 January 2022 - 27 January 2022
16:00 - 17:30
An opportunity to find out more about the research of Woodbrooke’s Eva Koch Scholars.
Jasmine Piercy will share her work on the theme, ‘Our Friends and Other Animals’: how we might extend our Quaker testimony to all species. Adopting a fresh, hopeful and non-judgemental approach, she has been engaging with Friends creatively through her online ‘Museum of Animal Stuff’, artefacts derived from animals, collected and curated into an interactive exhibition: www.mazingstuff.org.
Till Geiger will talk about his project exploring the response of Quakers to the emergence of the nuclear weapons as an existential threat not just to world peace but also to the very existence of humanity. By unearthing their witness, can this research provide lessons and helpful narratives for Friends today as we face the existential threat of the climate emergency?
