Peter Brown

Tuesday 5th December 2017

7:00pm, Room B104, Brunei Building, SOAS, Russell Square, London WC1H 0XG - Public lecture (all welcome)

The British Council has been working in Ethiopia since the early 1940s and their office in Addis Ababa was established in 1943. Since that time the Council has engaged with generations of young people through a diverse range of educational and cultural programmes. The Council works with partners, both Ethiopian and from the UK, to showcase excellence, innovation and creativity. It works for the benefit of the individual and for the mutual benefit of the UK and Ethiopia.

A 75-day series of celebrations to commemorate the 75 years of work has just finished and Peter Brown, the current Director of the British Council in Ethiopia, will reflect on the long history of educational and information projects in the country.

Capacity at the venue is limited, so please reserve your place soon to avoid disappointment.
