The TUC Library will be running a stall at the the Social Justice Summer School, which will launch on the afternoon of Friday 11 July and be followed by a full programme of lectures, workshops, posters, performances and other activities on Saturday 12 July.
The event is intended to be a celebration of the university’s longstanding commitment to social justice through its teaching, research and community engagements.
As well as showcasing and celebrating all that is great about our university the event will also be a lot of fun with a range of activities to engage families including film screenings, music and a barbeque.
We very much hope to see you at the event and on our stall.
