To mark the 50th anniversary of the progressive mass protests of 1968, this six-week series of events will consist of workshops, film screenings, and a three-day symposium. These will bring together a large number of high-profile activists who were ‘ringleaders’ of the protests as well as artists and filmmakers who broke new ground in the accompanying counterculture. These will be accompanied by a wide range of researchers from various disciplines. The series will deal with events and experiences of ’68 internationally, including in Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Brazil, the USA, and many other countries.
