EURO-MERNET FILM CLUB

UEuro-Mernet Film Club aims to raise awareness on social issues and promote the cultural heritage of diverse communities by screening films from around the world, with particular focus on Mediterranean, Middle East, and the entire Europe.

The films we screen are usually social comedies, satirical pieces, documentaries and similar independent productions. Sometimes our film screenings are followed by a talk by a director/producer/actor/actress themselves and/or a discussion between the guests on the film.

We have several film screening venues across Brighton and Hove. On average we show 2 films per month. Joining Euro-Mernet Film Club and attending all our film screenings are FREE. You are always welcome to join us and enjoy watching a film with us.

EURO-MERNET POETRY CLUB

Euro-Mernet Poetry Club aims to provide a platform of free expression and an ambiance of inspiration, desire and passion for poetry lovers. The monthly themes we choose vary greatly, but usually with a focus on the Mediterranean, Middle East, and the entire Europe.

Although we will be reading out poems from our repertory on a variety of topics and from diverse local and global communities, our guests are also welcome to bring poems and read out on stage.

JANUARY 2017

Tea and Coffe in Poetry

This month’s theme is… Tea and Coffee!

We will dive into the depths of tea cups and coffee cups… or, perhaps we should say that we will swim across a sea of poems that are dedicated to tea and coffee. Many poets say that tea and coffee give them strength and inspiration to write powerful poems. So do many poetry lovers, when asked about the best companion in reading poems. Let’s find out more about this together.

Venue: The Blue Man, 8 Queens Road, Brighton, BN1 3WA

EURO-MERNET CULTURAL HERITAGE CLUB

Euro-Mernet Cultural Heritage Club aims to highlight and promote the wealth and beauty of the cultural heritage of diverse communities from across the UK and across the world. Various forms and techniques are used during the cultural heritage related stage performances. Guests are welcome to interact and take part.

The Cultural Heritage Club presentation dates for January and February 2017 are as follows:

JANUARY 2017

Tuesday, 31 January 2017; 7pm – 9pm
Mesopotamian Mythology

The theme for this month’s Cultural Heritage Club  is… Mesopotamian Mythology!…

The ancient Mesopotamia region has been on the news headlines in recent years almost only due to news of war and violence in the surrounding countries – Syria, Iraq, Turkey… We thought perhaps we can discuss the cultural heritage of the region’s mythology and its influences and aspirations across the neighbouring territories and cultures.

We may know much about the myths and stories of deities in big budget movies, but how about finding out also about the ancient Mesopotamian deities Anu, Inanna/Ishtar, Marduk, Shamash, Ninurta, or Tiamat, who were believed to have possessed magical powers?

We will also have a Cultural Heritage Quiz with surprise gifts for every correct answer!
