A PEACE OF ME

This online exhibition entitled ‘A PEACE OF ME’ showcased reflections of participants who have journeyed with us here at Building Communities Resource Centre, either individually or as a group.

These reflection pieces took many forms of delivery such as music, poetry, photography, craft and art and be representative of the good relations work that has taken place within our Borough of Causeway Coast and Glens.

Through our ongoing community development work on the ground, we have seen the natural progression of community relations and good relations take root through increased partnership, collaboration, trust and friendship. All pieces will remain anonymous.

100 Voices

This event entitled ‘100 Voices’ recorded the thoughts, hopes, experiences and expectations of the forthcoming anniversary of NI 100 years which will take place in May 2021.

This event will be a unique opportunity to reflect on the past and to celebrate the present and to look towards the future. It will be facilitated within a spirit of historical accuracy, mutual respect, inclusiveness and reconciliation which will acknowledge the Decade Principles supported by the Community Relations Council and The Heritage Lottery Fund.

It will be an opportunity for 100 voices representing both young and old, across our diverse society to engage in a project that will create a lasting legacy for generations to come.

Teachers Conference for Shared Education

This video is from the Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council ‘Shared Education’ conference in March 2019 for local schools.

The conference was designed to support schools to engage with one another, thereby increasing opportunities for young people from different backgrounds to socialise together, and allowing young people to be more engaged in bringing the community together.

Taste of Culture

This video is from our Taste of Culture events in Summer 2018. The events were designed to showcase the rich diversity of culture that exists throughout the Causeway Coast & Glens Borough, and to increase the use of shared space and ensure that our Arts Centres are accessible to all.
