    We would like to invite you to attend the premiere of a film by the artist Steve Geliot. Inspired by cutting-edge research on ‘enduring love’ conducted at the Open University, Steve has created a film that explores the nature of intimacy. It presents cameos of everyday lives and loves, and is designed to provoke the audience to think about their own relationships. This premiere will be accompanied by live music from the singer David McAlmont with accompaniment from Guy Davies.

     

    To hear the study's findings and critical debate about the scope and relevance of relationship research by leading contributors in the field, you are warmly invited to join us at this end of project celebratory event.

    OnePlusOne has circulated information about the Enduring Love? Questionnaire through their ‘do it yourself’ relationship support service on the couple connection website.
