Christ's College Junior Production – PRIVATE PEACEFUL
Written by Michael Morpurgo of War Horse fame, Private Peaceful is an hour-long, and is taking place virtually 100 years to the day from when WW1 ended.
It covers an eight-hour time span as Tommo, the lead character reminisces about his life – his adventures, his parents, his childhood, his loves and the injustices of war that have brought him to the front line in the trenches of Flanders.
Chris Cheesman is directing the two casts of boys who will present the four performances.
Private Peaceful is guaranteed to have you laughing – and crying.

Thursday 21 June, 1.30pm & 7.30pm

Centre for Ethics & Spirituality – When good pictures go bad: Public perceptions of private suffering
Vicar of the Anglican Parish of Sumner–Redcliffs Rev. Thomas C Brauer

From the American and Spanish civil wars, through the great depression, right up to the conflicts and disasters of today, photography has played a significant role in portraying the violence, suffering and trauma of people’s lives. But many question the ethics of this action. Does photography of suffering help grow compassion, or create compassion fatigue? Does photography of violence educate and inform, or perpetuate conflict and pain?

In this presentation, Rev. Brauer will look at how photography and digital media is used to document our lives. The discussion will consider the ethics of taking photographs of people at their most vulnerable and sharing the images with a global audience. (Warning: Some images  may be confronting.)
