This year, Towards Understanding and Healing have created a DVD illustrating their processes of storytelling and dialogue. Storytelling and dialogue bring together people who have been affected by the Troubles to talk about its legacy in their lives and to discuss key issues stemming from the conflict. The film features the processes at work; and includes a wide range of voices, from ex-combatants to those injured and bereaved from all sides. A short time of dialogue and discussion will follow the screening of the film, and Towards Understanding and Healing staff will be on hand to talk about training resources for storytelling and dialogue work. This event is open to all, but may be of particular use for community workers who are interested in using storytelling and dialogue in their work.
