Lucy Parker has invited individuals to speak on the subject of endings in relation to their specific fields of interest. The question of what constitutes a satisfactory ending or a sense of resolve is key in the cases of blacklisted constructed workers; after years of being prevented from being able to work, what does fair compensation consist of?
Speakers include legal academic Dr Chloë Kennedy who will speak about legal resolutions, bassoonist and artist Faith Limbrick who will play and discuss closing motifs in classical music and film programmer Peter Taylor who will present a collection of film endings and invite the audience to share endings from their favourite films.
Soup and popcorn will be served.
