On 9 July 2015, the European Parliament will vote on whether to abolish our right to freely take and share photographs, videos and drawings of buildings and works of public art. 

What is Freedom of Panorama?

Freedom of Panorama is a provision in the copyright laws that permits taking photographs or video footage, or creating other images (such as paintings), of buildings and sometimes sculptures and other art which are permanently located in a public place, without infringing any copyright that may otherwise subsist in such works, and to publish such images. more here

The Roots Project was established in 2009 by Anyieth D'Awol as an independent, female-driven NGO in Juba, South Sudan. ROOTS Project offers opportunities for social and economic empowerment to its members from all walks of life. With its mission, “women crafting a new nation together,” the centre provides a shared workspace where the women create unique handmade beaded jewelry. In the process, personal relationships are created, fostering understanding and tolerance.

Meet the founders of the Roots Project in Los Angeles on September 30th at the Marymount Institute center. Click here for the details.

On the Shelves in Oxford this week we have two new books and two very different subjects.

Picturing the Apocalypse shows the different meanings and significance the themes of the Book of Revelation have had for believers, and non-believers, through the ages.These explanations are augmented and developed via a carefully selected sample of the ways in which the concepts have been treated by artists through the centuries.

The Locus Effect addresses a massive international problem that millions around the world care about severe poverty. It sets the stage for the next great paradigm shift in fighting poverty: the struggle to make common poor people safe from violence.
