On the occasion of the international #rjweek 2017, the EFRJ launched the film A CONVERSATION (No Theatre 2017) based on a theatre play where two families engage into a dialogue after the rape and murder of a young girl. During that week, the film, which has been subtitled in 15 languages by our members, was screened in 68 different venues in 26 countries and reached about 3000 people coming from different fields of expertise (e.g. mediators, lawyers, psychologists, criminologists, probation officers, prison staff, policemen, artists, researchers, policy officers, educators, youth workers, activists…).
More screenings are taking place since then!
On 18 October, our former Board member Beata Czarnecka-Dzialuk will introduce and discuss the film at the Faculty of Law and Administration of the Gdańsk University: more info here. The screening is organised together with the Law and Administration Faculty (Prof. Wojciech Zalewski) and the Gdańsk Division of the Polish Centre for Mediation (Katarzyna Stryjek) as part of a “restorative coffee table” during the International Mediation Week in Poland. The film will be screened with Polish subtitles thanks to the work done by Janusz Kaźmierczak from the Fundacja Pracownia Dialogu.
Beata and her colleagues at Gdańsk University are part of the local organising team of the EFRJ Summer School 2019 (22-26 July) on child-friendly RJ. For more info click here.
The EFRJ will be present in another Polish event before the RJ Week: on 16 November there will be a conference on mediation as a right, organised by the Poznańskie Centrum Mediacji. For more info click here.
