16:00 – 17:00 White Privilege Group

This is to invite any Friends who would like to join to a one-off meeting of the White Privilege Group in a small meeting room at the Quaker Centre. Six people have indicated they’ll be attending and there is room for another six.

We have guest speaker, Mike Kasibo. He has worked with local institutions to bring people together from our different communities in Milton Keynes. He has worked with those who are particularly hard to engage and as an advocate for young Black people who feel alienated and excluded.

The meeting will include a presentation from Mike followed by a question-and-answer session.

You don’t have to let anyone know if you’re intending to be there, but if you were able to let Nigel Walker know in advance (either direct or via the clerks coclerksmk@llquakers.org.uk ) he’ll be able to let you know in the unlikely event of a cancellation.

19:30 Vamos Theatre Company: Dead Good 
Vamos Theatre Company is hosting the free online premiere of their acclaimed full-mask theatre show, Dead Good.

Originally commissioned by London International Mime Festival, Dead Good is a funny and poignant theatre show celebrating friendship – and the importance of living every precious day to the full. Performed without words, the show’s 5-star reviews describe it as “a masterclass in beautifully crafted full mask acting” (Drama and Theatre Magazine) and “the most perfect and powerful 75-minutes of silent storytelling” (Arts City Liverpool).
After the show, you’ll have the chance to live chat on YouTube with director, Rachael Savage, and author and palliative care specialist, Kathryn Mannix.
Whether you’ve seen Dead Good live or if you’ve never seen Vamos Theatre before, this is your chance to catch the UK’s leading full-mask theatre company filmed especially for online viewing.
The performance will be streamed here: www.youtube.com/vamostheatre
