North East communities join together to celebrate three-year programme

on .

BCRC_webGroups from Ballymoney, Coleraine and Moyle today (22nd August) marked the conclusion of a three-year cross-community project with a special celebration event in Derry/Londonderry.

The two-day event was designed to highlight a significant body of work on issues of identity and relationship building, and point to ways in which processes begun through the Rooting for Change Together Project can be sustained in the future.

Part-funded by the International Fund for Ireland, the £300,000 Rooting for Change Together Project delivered a package of cross-community activities that helped build the confidence and capacity of local groups and individuals, break down misconceptions and promote understanding between communities.

 ‘Shared Past, Shared Future’ – Using Theatre as a Tool for Peace-Building

 

Border_Youth_Summer_CampOn Friday (9th August) an audience of over 150 people from Donegal and Tyrone came together at The Balor Arts Centre, Ballybofey for a special night of theatre showcasing the talented works of local participants of the Border Youth Summer Camp.

 

On the night, the project’s younger participants (aged 11- 13 years) treated the audience to BestBeat, a hilarious and energetic comedy about two bands who will stop at nothing to win a battle-of-the-bands competition. This was followed by The Blame – a moving and thought-provoking drama presented by the project’s older group (14-17 years) examining the factors that led to the sinking of the titanic.
