White Rose Circle Café

November 21, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This is an online event.

In 1943 five students and a professor at the University of Munich were executed. They had been part of the White Rose, a group secretly writing pamphlets calling on Germans to resist Hitler. In the White Rose Circle café, Dr Alexandra Lloyd will introduce the group and their resistance pamphlets, texts inspired by literature and philosophy with quotations from a wide range of sources, from Goethe to Laozi. After a short break, participants will be invited to share a phrase from a creative work that inspires or resonates with them and together we’ll discuss how their phrase could inspire us to create a better world. What does a world look like where this phrase is a guiding principle? What ideas lie behind it? We’ll invite participants to make a poster of their phrase after the event for our website.
