An alternative Remembrance Day service marking 100 years since the end of World War 1, as part of A Mindful Mess Festival 2018.

***Please arrive before 11AM to mark the 2 minutes silence at 11AM in respect of all those who have died and suffered in wars past and present. ***

Drawing on research and interviews, artist and poet Jack Miguel will be discussing the relationship between PTSD, war and inter-generational trauma, the importance of remembrance in the modern day and why it’s so necessary for us to cultivate a healthy relationship with death.

Plus poetry from poet and former prisoner, Jamal Khan.

We’ll also as usual be singing some songs, sharing some wisdom, building community and connecting over instant coffee and biscuits!

Stick around after the assembly for the rest of the Mindful Mess line up; an Open Space discussion on mental health, a performance from the ‘Sex Pistols of Balkan brass, Trans-Siberian March Band, and a film screening of Mary and Max.

Full A Mindful Mess programme can be found here.

About Sunday Assembly East End

Sunday Assembly East End is an inclusive, secular congregation that celebrates life, in all its tragic glory, via fascinating talks, classic pop singalongs, poetry, and instant coffee (amongst other things). We meet every second Sunday morning of the month at Poplar Union. Between assemblies we also run small group activities, organise local volunteering and do our very best to build community and connection in divided times. Come together!
