Living Fully – Strasbourg 2017

30 August – 2 September 2017

In June 2016, The Kairos Forum went to Rome to deliver the Living Fully Academic Symposium and conference in the Vatican – co-patroned by the Pontifical Council for Culture.

The four-day event brought together persons with disabilities, members of their families, leading theologians and practitioners within the field of theology and disability. Our time together,
celebrated the presence of persons with disabilities and advocated a place of belonging and hope for all people – no matter their ability.

Now we’re repeating the ‘Living Fully’ experience in another European city… Strasbourg in France.

From the 30 August to 2 September 2017, Kairos in partnership with the European Society for the Study of Disability will hold another Living Fully event.

We have organised four workshops within the framework of the European Society for Catholic Theology’s (ESSTD) Congress on Fraternity in Strasburg.

Our workshops will provide an opportunity to deepen the theme of fraternity and disability within all fields of theology but also in its relationship with, sociology, anthropology, charity, environment, education and more.

The Kairos Forum for Cognitively and Intellectually Disabled People: Crafting communities of belonging through attention to the spiritual.

 

The Kairos Forum, is an independent consultancy which serves to enable the lives of people who have disabilities and who have been Intellectually Disabled (KFCID). The consultancy is born out of a research project with the University of Aberdeen. The forum acts as advisors to organisations, such as the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales, providers of education, health and care.  Kairos has also provided training in SEN and legislation to over two thousand teachers in the United Kingdom. We also work with families and individuals in many areas of the life and hopes of people with disabilities.  We have recently provided consultancy to the Pontifical Council for Culture concerning Disability, Culture Sport and Theology, who were co-patrons of our internationally acclaimed conference which was both developed and delivered by Kairos: LivingFully2016
