LOTS of great upcoming events with SOASIS and beyond

Hi everyone!

It was lovely to meet new people last night, and looking forward to meeting more of you at our food politics dinner next week. We’re going to be organising monthly film screenings this year, so watch this space for more details, and if you have anything you’d like to see, get in touch.

There’s loads of brilliant things going on at SOAS in the next few weeks, I’ll start by giving you details of the ones we’re organising, and then a selection of some other events you might be interested in… also some publicity leaflets are attached to this email. All SOAS Israel Soc events are wheelchair accessible, and please contact us if you have any access needs we can help with.
