Sat 16 May - Tamara Erde and Aowen Jin: Skin Colour and Body Image & History in the Palestinian and Israeli Classrooms

Tamara Erde talks about her 90 min documentary film 'This is my land'
How do the Palestinian and Israeli (Jewish and Arab) education systems teach the history of their nations?
The film follows several Israeli and Palestinian teachers during a school year and the way they teach their national history.Through dialogues and challenges with their students, debates with the ministries curriculum and its restrictions, the viewers obtain the long lasting and profound effect that the Israeli/Palestinian conflict transmits onto the next generation.

Aowen Jin
Aowen Jin is a leading Chinese-born British artist, based in London. She discusses her work towards exhibition on perceptions of body image . This project is in collaboration with The Body Narrative and explores how African/Caribbean young women express their identity in London through the colour of their skin.

With Jude Montague and Rebecca Feiner
