An Evening with David Salle. David Salle is the leading American postmodernist painter, the shaping spirit of a movement which provocatively took the entire history of art as its raw material as well as subject matter. His works are mysteriously original, yet everything they contain has had a life elsewhere: in paintings, in advertising, in comics, in photographs, yet somehow the result is all art. To coincide with his new book – How to See: Looking, Talking and Thinking about Art– Salle will walk us through the museum without walls that is his world.

Conway Hall Ethical Society presents:

My Death, My Decision?

Sunday 29th January @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Sunday 29th January @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London, WC1R 4RL United Kingdom

What is a ‘good death’? For some people, it is a medically assisted death, when they feel their life is complete – something denied in the UK.

Phil Cheatle will explain the approach of the campaign group ‘My Death, My Decision’, providing much stronger protection for ‘vulnerable people’, while rejecting the restriction of assisted dying to those with a life-expectancy of 6 months or less a criterion that attracts criticism from both sides of the debate.

Conway Hall Ethical Society presents:

New Frontiers in UK Politics?

Sunday 5th February @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London, WC1R 4RL United Kingdom

Discussion Event: Jonathan Bartley (Co-Leader, Green Party), Peter Taheri (Chair, Hampstead and Kilburn Labour Party) and Timothy Barnes (Conservative candidate for Bloomsbury Ward 2018).

The new leadership of the Green Party has called for a “progressive alliance” involving Labour, Greens, Plaid Cymru, the SNP and the Lib Dems to take on the Conservatives in a 2020 election. This requires progressives to put aside their differences and unite behind a common new purpose – but are they up to the challenge?

Or is the way forward in the UK best left to one of the established main parties? Can they adapt and meet the aspirations of our nation in this new era of political turmoil?
