LSE Sociology Department are hosting a 3-day festival exploring the ideas and actions behind resistance.
The festival will look at how the theme of resistance is interpreted in academic research, the arts, grassroots activism campaigns, student debate and mainstream politics. They’ll be taking over the campus for public discussions, film screenings, workshops, debates and art exhibitions curated by LSE staff and students.
Here are just a few highlights to look out for.
Vivienne Westwood: We Are The Opposition. (Part 1 26/9 & Part 2 28/9)
Kicking off the festival, the legendary designer and activist is giving a talk on how critical thinking, collaboration with intellectuals and activists, and the arts can be used to resist propaganda.
Food banks, Sanctions and Participatory Methods
In order to go beyond the statistics documenting the recent rise of food bank use and benefit sanctions, this session will show two short films made by people with personal experience of them. There’ll also be a discussion about how such films can be used to both illuminate these systems and mobilise resistance.
Sounds Of Resistance: Gig Night
Resist hosts a selection of bands, poets and DJs to celebrate how music and performance can be used as vehicles for resistance. The evening will include pieces by poet Bridget Minamore, band Thee Deadtime Philharmonic, and DJ Jay King.
Drawing the festival to a close, this light installation will be a demonstration of the power of light by asking participants to verbalise their impressions of the previous three days. People’s ideas will be projected onto the facade of the New Academic building in true guerilla resistance style.
This is just a tiny glance at all the things happening at the festival. There is so much more to see, do, and get involved in.
Jagged Fragments: a radical theatre production (Friday 30th 6-7pm, The Old Theatre)
Expect dance, glitter, theatre, film and rioting. A multimedia stage show, Jagged Fragments takes audiences to the grinding heart of a future East London. The play looks at how borders, work, housing and community might operate in a future which isn’t quite ours, but could be.
As a means to engage people to think about what resistance means to them, and to explore how practices of resistance feature in their daily lives, the Resist organisers are asking people to offer a couple of words in response to a simple question: What do YOU resist? Answers can be witty, wise or anything in between. Responses will then be shared with the wider public on the last evening of the Festival by projecting them onto the facade of the New Academic building in a true resistance and guerrilla style. Contributions can be made by tweeting @LSEsociology using the hashtag #LSEresist, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by filling in the response cards that will be given out during the Festival.
