About this program

Conflict From Both Sides tells the story behind the story, revealing the true events and people that inspired the novels September 17 and The Pact. We’ll look at images of children from England and Germany to understand the challenges they faced during wartime. The focus is on an empathetic understanding of World War 2 from a child’s perspective view, touching on propaganda, indoctrination, racism, and survival. Readings from September 17: A Novel and The Pact will be followed by a Q & A.
Equipment And Other Requirements: A projector compatible with a MAC or a computer for a memory stick. g with sound and visual cues and drawing on aspects of theatre improvisation, participants explore character creation, point of view and dialogue. The workshop focuses on playing with words as the basic building blocks of writing.
