Creative Arts, Human Rights and Peace Symposium

28 May 2019

Smashing Times' Creative Connections project – using creative processes of theatre, film and new digital technologies to promote positive community relations between different traditions on the island of Ireland – will culminate in a one-day Creative Arts, Human Rights and Peace Symposium in Northern Ireland. The symposium, taking place in the Island Arts Centre, Lisburn on 17 October, features a performance of The Woman is Present: Women’s Stories of WWII by Mary Moynihan, Fiona Bawn Thompson and Paul Kennedy, alongside workshops and presentations with the artists and invited guest speakers.

The symposium will attract a diverse audience, including groups from the two main traditions in Northern Ireland and ethnic minority communities, comprising an ex-Republican and Loyalist prisoner’s group, ex-service personnel, hard to reach youth and community groups, second level schools, ethnic minority groups, and women’s groups.
