Looking, Seeing and Understanding

When we look, what do we see?  Why does our neighbour look at the same thing and see something different?  This forum will explore how art can assist our thinking and encourage more understanding dialogue.

Evening Forum

The Qualities of a Leader

This forum will discuss just two extracts which focus on vision, conviction and character as key features of leadership.  Robert Musil’s modern masterpiece ‘The Man Without Qualities’ explores selfhood and its erosion of character, whilst the great biographer William Manchester looks at the life and leadership of Winston Churchill – ‘The Last Lion’.
