Faith and Fashion on the school run

Faith and Fashion school run

Panel discussion with Professor Reina Lewis of London College of Fashion, Claire Drucquer, a religious studies teacher and Patrick Moriarty, the Headteacher of JCoSS.

Context of the event

The premise that school uniforms encourage good behaviour among school students is unquestioned by many in the UK today. However what happens when dress codes ‘mission creep’?

Increasingly dress codes are being used to regulate the behaviour of teachers and parents as well as students in faith schools. In non-faith schools, local community norms can produce a de-facto dress code, policed by student peer groups in the playground and parents on the pavement.

About the speakers

To discuss what constitutes today’s school wardrobe, Professor Reina Lewis of London College of Fashion brings her Faith and Fashion series to JW3 to ask teachers, parents, and students if and how what they wear can cross the school gate.

To consider the nuance of school wear, Reina is joined by a panel including Claire Drucquer, a religious studies teacher who, as schools coordinator for Three Faiths Forum, works with people of all faiths and beliefs to build new intercommunal relationships, and Patrick Moriarty, the Headteacher of JCoSS, the UK’s first pluralist Jewish Secondary School who, himself training for ordination as an Anglican priest, has a keen interest in interfaith dialogue.

Logo_PhyContImag

A research talk by Yve Lomax:

‘Photographs, Writing’

Wednesday 11 March 2015, 4.30.
Street Lecture Theatre, London College of Communication, Elephant & Castle.

All welcome.

The Photography and the Contemporary Imaginary Research Hub at LCC is pleased to announce a research talk by Yve Lomax:

‘Within this talk I will give examples of my writing and, in so doing, say something about photographic images. There will be examples that embrace what I can only call the ‘art’ of writing. There will also be examples of me toing and froing as, in writing, I enter into conversation with myself. And finally there will be ideas regarding the example itself and how, if only for a moment, a photographic image can be considered as that.’

Yve Lomax is a visual artist and writer. She is author of Pure Means: Writing, Photographs and an Insurrection of Being(2013), Passionate Being: Language, Singularity and Perseverance (2010), Sounding the Event: Escapades in Dialogue and Matters of Art, Nature and Time (2005) and Writing the Image: An Adventure with Art and Theory (2000). She is currently Senior Research Tutor for Photography and Fine Art at the Royal College of Art. She is also a director of and commissioning editor for the Common Intellectual series of Copy Press.

This event is organized in association with TrAIN, the UAL research centre for transnational art, identity and nation.

Inside Out Festival Opening Debate: Failure – What’s it good for?

Failure

Nothing succeeds like Success. Or so we’re told.

True to form and true to the spirit of Inside Out Festival’s annual Opening Debate, we are delighted to tackle and celebrate the tricky topic of Failure in all its thorny glory. In a manner that sets out to be both light-hearted and compelling, a number of brave panellists will offer their views on Failure with perspectives that may amuse, offend, comfort and inspire.

Panelists include:

  • Professor Gavin Henderson CBE
  • Nick Catliff
  • Professor Clive Holtham
  • Dr Mitra Memarzia
  • Dr David Berman

When: Monday 21st October 2013, 6:30pm
