Justice for Palestine: One Democratic State
Eventbrite.co.uk
7pm - 10pm


Jeff Halper argues that the ‘matrix’ of control that Israel has imposed on the Occupied Territory has effectively eliminated the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian ‘conflict’ and has instead produced a regime of apartheid.
The only just solution that Israel has left us with, he says, is a single constitutional democracy: one country, one citizenship, one parliament and one shared civil society in which its people’s collective rights are also protected. Dr Halper will explore in depth how such a solution would work and how it can be achieved.
Jeff Halper is an Israeli anthropologist and co-founder and director of the non-violent direct-action group ICAHD (Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions).
He has taught at universities in Israel and the US, and in Latin America and Africa. His books include Obstacles to Peace: A Reframing of the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict (2005), An Israeli in Palestine: Resisting Dispossession, Redeeming Israel (2008) and War amongst the People: Israel, the Palestinians and Global Pacification (2015), which was shortlisted for the Palestine Book Award.
With ICAHD, he is currently involved in the joint Palestinian-Israeli grassroots initiative the One Democratic State Campaign.

Pencil To Paint: Apr - Jun 2018
Eventbrite.co.uk
18th April - 13th June


“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
The theme for this particular 8 week Pencil To Paint course will be abstraction and we will look at how form, gesture and emotion all play their part in successful picture-making, regardless of genre.
Topics will include:
Mark-making
Line, measurement and proportion
Notān
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
Wednesdays:  18, 25 April; 02, 09, 23, 30 May; 06, 13 June (8 x 1.5 hour sessions)
