Shortening the Road: Storytelling and Conflict Resolution
We live in a world beset by conflict. Storytelling can play a vital role in promoting understanding between people of different faiths, nationalities and abilities. In her keynote Liz Weir will examine practical ways in which communities can engage in the sharing of stories which are held by the individuals within them. Based on her experience of peace-building storytelling projects which have taken place in Northern Ireland both during the conflict and in the post-conflict years, she will share the lessons learned which can be replicated in many other communities.
