Institute for Media and Creative Industries announce Paulo Freire Centennial cycle

The Institute for Media and Creative Industries at Loughborough University London will be hosting a series of events in March 2021 entitled ‘Paulo Freire Centennial: 7 talks in preparation for the next 100 years’.

This cycle will commence from 9-24 March 2021 and consists of two Plenaries and five Global Exchanges across the seven talks. The event will additionally invite local groups (research centres, faculties, networks of practitioners etc.) to engage organising local exchanges to unfold the global dialogues in relation to their contexts.

This cycle is an initiative set up to celebrate the centennial of the birth of Brazilian educator, Paulo Freire (1921-1997), inspired by his works, invites radical thinking and political imagination.

Friere’s work was widely associated with five principles: humility, empathy, love, hope and dialogue. These principles were developed by Freire in different degrees and forms throughout his works, and they also served as inspiration for many thinkers and practitioners all over the world. Can they serve as seminal inspiration for creatively devising the next 100 years? The Institute for Media and Creative Industries invites you to join them and their speakers from around the world as they venture into unfolding these principles and theories whilst sharing creative ideas and discussing invigorating topical issues.

There are limited spaces to this innovative event and registration is required. To find out more about the event please see here.
