Baz, Muyemba and Poppy are isolated and feel alone ? in a city of half a million people. How is this possible? What has caused this isolation? How and where can they make connections again? In partnership with The Bethany Christian Trust, The Alma Project and Shakti Women's Aid, Connected Lives explores the complex reasons that people become isolated including addiction, domestic violence, mental health difficulties and homelessness. The performance invites the audience to respond with suggestions for possible ways forward.

Set in the WWII Warsaw ghetto, this production tells the moving and heroic story of Dr Janusz Korczak, a Polish educator and children's author, who ran an orphanage for Jewish children destined to face the Nazi oppressors. Dr Korczak was a Polish doctor and writer, who passionately championed every child?s right to freedom, respect and love. Dr Korczak?s Example is set in 1942 in the final days of an orphanage in the Jewish ghetto of Warsaw, where food is scarce, tempers rise and everyone wants to survive. Award-winning playwright David Greig tells this powerful tale of Korczak's refusal to abandon the young people in his care, and focuses on the human need for respect and hope, even in the face of injustice.

It follows the interweaving stories of three pregnant women: a Syrian woman journeying to the UK, a British woman describing her struggle with poverty, and the biblical story of Mary visiting Elizabeth to share her good news. The dance piece explores themes of loss, endurance and new beginnings through a female lense, not in a linear or literal way but through evoking the inner, emotional journey of the women - piecing together the fragments of lives radically changed. The dance interacts with an original soundtrack by composer Gary Lloyd, recorded at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall by the Scottish Session Orchestra conducted by Adam Robinson.

CROW

This odyssey for the migrant era takes us through the storm of 20th-century history in the company of literary hero Leopold Bloom. Escaping from his famous novel in search of a tribe to call his own, Bloom attempts to conjure his true identity. Getting far more than he bargained for, he travels through the dark heart of Europe's past towards the present day. A Herculean solo performance drives this flamboyant and playful investigation of belonging towards its remarkable conclusion.

Supported by the Global Partnerships Committee of the Scottish Episcopal Church.

The Nevis Ensemble is different. Its vision is 'music for everyone, everywhere'. Full-scale orchestral performances of the best, most diverse music you can imagine: popping up and surprising commuters first thing in the morning; entertaining residents in oft-forgotten parts of the city; guerrilla-style appearances in swimming pools; generating huge public audiences in public spaces. There's nothing else quite like it in Scotland.

The process of assimilation into LGBTQ communities can be complicated. Whether it is body image, lifestyle choices or openness surrounding gender identity and sexual orientation, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people can often experience ostracism from the community members with whom they wish to identify.

M an dela's Legacy

'But we have no slaves in Scotland? ,' says a Scottish law report from 1687. Slavery was formally abolished by the UK Parliament in 1833. Yet slavery is still very much with us and tackled again by recent legislation in Westminster and Holyrood. What forms does it take? What are enforcement agencies and NGOs doing to challenge it? And what role can WE play in stopping it?

What autonomy should faith-based and family courts have in the UK? How can it be ensured that an individual's basic human rights and the right to a fair trial are respected? This conversation will explore the practice of Sharia and Jewish courts in the UK as well as the legal accommodations received by the UK?s Muslim and Jewish communities.

We live in a world where being born female is a health risk. Day after day, around the world, girls are told their lives don?t matter: married off in their early teens, denied an education, burdened by household chores, providing food and care for sick relatives and denied a youth. It is time to raise a voice of hope. To ensure every girl is heard. To show that every girl matters.

Just Festival events aim to challenge percept ions, celebrate differences and promote respect ful dialogue. The conversations, talks, exhibitions and performances which constitute Just?s annual programme are designed to engage with topical local, national and international questions of social justice, equality and identity, including prejudice against race, ethnicity, class and economic status. Just explores these issues by creating safe spaces for dialogue and exchange between affected groups and individuals, invited experts, practitioners, community based organisations, socially conscious performing arts groups and the general public.

What should the priorities be for international aid agencies providing support to countries affected by conflict, famine or natural disaster? What steps are being taken to decrease dependency and encourage sustainable solutions, and what effect have recent scandals had on policy and practice?

With increasing numbers of people affected by loneliness and isolation across age groups and backgrounds, we explore the roots of isolation as well as creative approaches towards tackling loneliness.

Caf é at St Joh n's | £6 | PG An exploration of the history of the Scottish funeral reveals that, far from being a timeless ritual, it has constantly undergone many significant and surprising changes that have made it very different from the funeral ritual in other parts of Britain. Many eye-opening facts will be explained in this talk by Eddie Small (Dundee University).
