1:30pm - 2:30pm
Warwick Thursdays - Stephen Vincent
Writers' Room G08 Millburn House

Stephen Vincent’s career combines poetry, essays, art and book publishing. His hybrid practice reflects an immersion in the physical environment, contemporary society and politics. His haptic (based on the sense of touch) drawing – sometimes called “Poetry by Other Means” – directly engages the “vibrational fields” of performance and place: poetry readings, work with musicians, urban street sites, and the Sierra Mountains of California. He is the author of more than twelve books of poetry and the publisher of Momo's Press and Bedford Arts; his artist books are collected by museums and libraries worldwide. Vincent will read from and share the artwork in his most recent volume: The Last 100 Days of the Presidency of Barack Obama (October 13 – January 20, 2017).

Prof Tony Howard - Shakespeare and the Refugees

A new film of Shakespeare's great speech opposing prejudice. Filmed in Leeds for BBAShakespeare and Prof Tony Howard.

Working with the director Peter Trifunovic, Professor Tony Howard (English Department/Warwick's Multicultural Shakespeare Project) has put together a short film which takes speeches believed to be by Shakespeare and transplants them to a pub in Leeds today. Across the centuries, it speaks powerfully about intolerance and the refugee crisis - during Refugee Week 2018.

Please watch and Spread The Words.

This new film based on a four hundred year old speech shows fear of immigration is nothing new.

In 1517 anti-immigrant riots broke out in London. Thomas More, then a deputy Sheriff of the city, intervened.

Decades later William Shakespeare wrote a speech for the play 'Sir Thomas More', in which More defended asylum seekers - 'the strangers'.
