25 October || Guilty or not guilty? How to get justice in cases of possible wrongful convictions
by Celine van Golde & Lisanne Adam

Wrongful convictions can and do happen – it's the unfortunate truth of the legal system. However, this problem is not purely a legal matter. This event's presentation will focus on how evidence in legal proceedings can inadvertently support false conclusions. Presenters are Associate Lecturer in Psychology Celine van Golde and Dutch Lawyer Lisanne Adam, both of the 'Not Guilty' project at the University of Sydney. 

About the Not Guilty project
Not Guilty: The Sydney Exoneration Project is a psychology and law research program at the University of Sydney that reviews cases of possible wrongful convictions. Celine and Lisanne will present real-life cases (American, Australian and Dutch) in which errors, by eyewitnesses, police, prosecutors, and other experts led to people spent years in jail for crimes they did not commit. They will discuss research that focuses on the reliability of witness and victim memory, specifically, how memory accuracy can be affected by those in forensic settings, such as police, lawyers and judges.

The Netherlands Consulate General in Sydney has a limited number of free tickets available for our readers to attend a special Masterclass by Dutch Professor of violin, viola and chamber music Isabelle van Keulen. 

Ms van Keulen has given masterclasses and played as a soloist with orchestras such as the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Berlin Philharmonic and NHK Tokyo and has made many recordings in the past decades.
In this masterclass Isabelle van Keulen will listen to, and work with selected gifted students from the Conservatorium on the interpretation of their solo-repertoire for their instrument. This public masterclass offers a rare opportunity to observe the workshop of an international performing artist and witness how interpretative and technical decisions are made on the highest level. There will be plenty of music from the students as well as the master so sit back and enjoy this unique experience.
