Talk: EDF sues Bristol Resident for £5million
Hamilton House 12/03/13 7:30-9pm
A Bristol-based community project says, ‘Thank you’ to the people of Knowle West and Bedminster as it prepares to close its doors. Now that the Artspace Lifespace College Project is coming to an end at its current location, the project team are looking for new spaces to move its many exciting artist-led community activities to.
The project is set to end on April 1, 2013, when the old college facilities will be demolished to make way for a housing estate, and Bristol City Council establishes a primary school at the front of the site. The plans for the site are at: www.knowlewest.co.uk/proposed-redevelopment-marksbury-rd-former-college-site/
A full week of activities and demonstrations are taking place for local youths, ending with an Educational Family Fun Day (March 31) that will encourage the local community to access our facilities one last time. Our artists, craftspeople, gardeners, athletes and teachers will be offering local people a range of free activities for the entire family to enjoy. If you haven't had the chance to experience the arts, crafts and fun of the Artspace College Project, now is the time. This event is free and open to the public.
We want to put the Fayre back into Bookfair.
Propaganda and its role in shaping the views of a nation
Monday 4th March 8pm The Cube, Dove Street, Bristol. Entry £3/£4 (But nobody turned away due to lack of funds)
Permanent Culture Now, Bristol Indymedia and Bristol Radical History Group are proud to present as part of the Bristol Radical Film Festival a presentation and series of films about how propaganda was used by the Establishment during the time of the Empire and Colonialism to persuade our own population of the greatness of the empire. The techniques and manipulation of information have a resonance for today as we constantly see propaganda techniques used to justify illegal wars and policy decisions.
Frances Gooding has been researching colonial film as part of the a wider project and he will present a series of rare films that highlight the propaganda machine in action, he will explain film was manipulated to rewrite history, a charge that could these days be pointed at Hollywood movies (Pearl Harbour, Braveheart anyone). After viewing these films Francis will unpick the motivations for making them and explain how they were changed to fit the ruling class ideology of the day. This will be an essential event for anyone interested in how our views are shaped by the media we consume and how this is used by the powerful interests of society, i.e. the state and ruling class to put their view of the world onto the mass population.
The event will be followed by a Q&A where we will discuss the relevance of these propaganda techniques for the world we live in today.
