Amish to Atheist
Venue: The B-Bar, Barbican Theatre
At 17 Hannah Timson, now president of the University of Exeter Atheist, Humanist, and Secular Society, was lucky enough to be one of six English Teenagers to take part in a 6 week documentary called 'Living with the Amish' for Channel 4. Spending 6-7 weeks living with different Amish and Mennonite families in Ohio, Hannah and her five companions came across various challenges in a culture where electronics, encounters with the opposite sex and even dancing are banned! Of course, it's a lot more nuanced than that...
Join us on the 25th April where Hannah will share her story, some embarrassing clips and discuss the event that was the catalyst to her losing her faith and the implications that has had.
This event is free and all are welcome, although we do ask for a voluntary contribution to help cover speakers' costs.
