About this event
Even before the controversial (but ultimately successful) nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had garnered attention in the age of Trump’s presidency.
She has become a pop culture and feminist icon, as well as holding widespread recognition for the scale of her professional legacy. Even now, the Democrats are desperately hoping the diminutive (but clearly very tough) 84-year old will stave off retirement to stay on an increasingly conservative bench. Betsy West and Julie Cohen’s tremendously inspiring film documents the birth of an unlikely rock star – exploring her personal background, media appearances, and legions of admirers, even her work-outs –showing how her legal battles have changed the lives of American women for generations to come.

Visiting Dartington Hall
Dartington is an old place with a new story.
The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.
This idea is as true today is it ever was.
