TIHR 70 Festival Symposium

TIHR 70 Festival Symposium

Join us at ‘In the Shadow & Light of the Archive’.


18 September 2017

Book your place at ‘In the Shadow & Light of the Archive’.

Reimagining Human Relations in Our Time is a festival celebrating 70 years of the Tavistock Institute. At the heart of the festival is the Institute’s archive which over the last two years has been intricately and delicately catalogued at Wellcome Library.

On Thursday 19th October we will host the symposium:
In the Shadow and Light of the Archive.

Through four different and thought provoking events the speakers and those attending the symposium will take part in a deep reflection on the meaning of the Institute’s work and history. Situated at its heart is the work to catalogue the Institute’s archive, what it means for this unique document of social history to be made publicly available for society at large and those of us working as Tavistock practitioners today. The opening up of the archive as moving from the shadows of our forebears to standing on the shoulders of giants.
