About the season
Here Is Where We Meet is the first event of its kind, a season designed around the work of writer John Berger and intended to explore and celebrate cultural collaboration and creative / political commitment. Coinciding with the publication of Berger’s new work of fiction, also called Here Is Where We Meet, the season takes in readings, performances, discussions, new site-specific work and the first ever retrospective of Berger’s prolific body of work in film and television. Major venues taking part include the South Bank Centre, National Film Theatre, National Gallery, Royal Court Theatre, Clore Gallery at the National Theatre, Tate Britain and other sites across London.
Through John Berger’s work and that of fellow artists and writers such as Geoff Dyer, Michael Ondaatje, Anne Michaels and Simon McBurney, Here Is Where We Meet seeks to explore what writing is for, what it can and cannot do, and whether it has a future as a tool of shared purpose, as an agent of the common good in societies increasingly fragmented and wary of collective causes and claims.
A season catalogue (96 pages) featuring writing from many participants, as well as full season details, is available from artevents, 107 Mayola Rd, London E5 0RG for £7.99 + £3.50 p+p Europe or £5.00 p+p outside of Europe.
Cheques and postal orders payable to ‘artevents’.
