As part of the Together project, in Northern Ireland, we ran workshops with a huge range of individuals and groups, from all kinds of backgrounds.
The workshops provided skills training in the areas of change-making, communication, confidence, creativity and leadership.
This video shows most of the groups we worked with: Active Communities Network, Alternatives NI, Corymeela, Dundonald High School, Hydebank Wood Young Offenders College and Women’s Prison, New Lodge Arts Group, New Lodge Youth Group, Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland, Public Achievement, Sandy Row Community Centre, Shankill Women’s centre, United Youth, Young Influencers, and Youth Action.
The film was shot and edited by Michael Foster, with Carl Quinn, Gary Stewart and Mark Rainey.
Thank you to Eva Grosman and Lord Alderdice of the Centre for Democracy and Peace Building, for the original idea, and saying yes, Conor Houston for making the workshops happen, and to the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister, for funding support.
