On March the 7th I attended the Remembering Srebrenica Conference at St Anthony’s College in Oxford. A fascinating mixture of academic and non academic speakers made this event especially engaging.
Particularly fascinating for me where Allan Little, who was the BBC special correspondent during the conflict in Bosnia and two secondary school teachers whose amazing determination to get genocide events talked about within schools was inspiring.
The conference has added fuel and further inspiration towards what I am hoping is the beginning of a new and exciting project. I have applied to participate in the ‘Lessons From Srebrenica’ educational visits programme. If I am accepted I hope to develop a deeper understanding and knowledge of events there with a view to building a body of work to exhibit next year.
