Working for Reconciliation in (The)North(ern) (of) Ireland

00:00

Kerry Weber and Tim Reidy host Pádraig Ó Tuama, who is a poet, theologian and mediator who works with a community in Northern Ireland called Corrymeela. Corrymeela is Northern Ireland’s oldest peace and reconciliation organization, with over 50 years of experience working alongside fractured communities and groups who are finding their relationships difficult, as well as addressing relational, societal, structural and power dynamics.

They run group sessions using dialogue, experiential play, art, storytelling, mealtimes and shared community to help groups embrace difference and learn how to have difficult conversations. They work alongside visiting university groups as well as groups from other parts of the world who wish to learn from our experience, and learn how to apply the Corrymeela lens to fractures in their own societies.
