We do not tell stories as they are, we tell them as we are

There is a growing awareness of the power of storytelling as a means for community development, advocacy and transformation. This workshop will explore a number of resources developed by the Irish Peace Centres and the Corrymeela Community in Northern Ireland – resources looking at storytelling, conflict, revenge, safety and forgiveness. A number of resources will be presented during the day, which practitioners in Melbourne will be very welcome to take (steal) and adapt to local neighbourhood and community needs.

Pádraig Ó Tuama is a poet and community development practitioner who works primarily in developing and delivering resources to community groups, faith communities and schools in Belfast.

The workshop is on March 27, 9.30 – 4pm at Solace, 751 Heidelberg Road, Alphington. Register online
