The Human Face Of Conflict (Delivery 7)

19/06/2023

Once again epilogues proved its ability to bring folk from disparate backgrounds together and create community. This delivery took place in the City Hotel, Derry beginning the weekend of Friday 24th Feb 2023 and concluding Sunday 18th June. Thanks on behalf of one and all to staff that looked after us. Thanks also to Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust and the Irish government’s Department of Foreign Affairs Reconciliation Fund without whose support this delivery could not be possible. 

Some comments from participants (see Perspectives menu for video feedback)

  • “I took part in it and said what I though and that is very new for me as I just sit back and listen”
  • “[I’ve noticed I’m] more open minded”
  • “I looked back over this Workbook and I am surprised that I answered the same question differently at the beginning before I started epilogues and again at the back of the book as we finished. I am chuffed. I can see the beginning of open mindedness in myself, good to build on”
  • “I loved this residential programme. I really believe anyone who dose this will benefit from it
  • “I have learned to listen.”
  • “I knew a lot about the troubles as I lived in a Catholic Nationalist area. I met lots of people from the Protestant community and it was great to hear their stories. I am definitely more open minded now.
  • “Keeping the house rules really really kept the programme running smoothly”

This cohort of graduates is scheduled to join with the previous three cohorts on 19th September to access what if any have been the long-term impacts of having completed the epilogues programme, to widen and deepen the connections already forged by their participation and to explore possible next steps for each participants as active citizens, be that on an individual or a collective basis going forward.
