Celebrating Good Relations in MEA: P7 Schools Engagement Programme

This programme has been running in Mid and East Antrim since 2016 and engaged with approximately 1000 Year 7 pupils from across the Borough. Learn more about the project and hear some feedback from teachers. Also included in our showcase is a short film about “What is Good Relations?” made for the Year 7s. We also have some photographs from a range of events delivered across the years to share.

As part of our P7 Schools Engagement Programme, we developed a short video explaining the Good Relations programme and what it is trying to achieve for the Borough. This short film will be included in the virtual package which is being developed for 2020/21.

Real Eyes | Realise | Real Lies : A Photographic Exhibition

In March 2019, Larne Museum & Arts Centre hosted a photographic exhibition by Millbrook Youth Group entitled ‘Real Eyes | Realise | Real Lies’. Supported by the Education Authority, a group of young men aged 17-19 from Millbrook, Larne, completed an OCN in Good Relations and Cultural Diversity. Some went on to participate in a Northern Ireland/Finland exchange, while others completed an OCN in Youth Leadership. To end the project, the young men took photographs of various locations around Northern Ireland, and researched some of the historical events in our recent history. The subsequent exhibition consisted of a selection of images, inspired by Banksy, which highlighted the absurdity of our language in a political and contemporary context.
