Epilogues Workshop Education Programme
What is the programme?
‘Epilogues’ is a conflict transformation programme, which has been developed by Gaslight Productions.
Delivered by Gaslight, the programme is a series of facilitated workshops, through which participants will explore the underlying causes of ‘the conflict’ in and about ‘Northern Ireland’.
The programme consists of eight modules exploring: Violence, Loss, Revenge, Forgiveness, Justice and Human Rights. Within inclusive workshops, where every view is respected but equally where every view can be challenged, ‘epilogues’ will explore the conflict through the perspectives of people who were part of it, or suffered as a result of it, and found themselves compelled to react to circumstances unfolding around them with what perspective they had at the time.
It should be noted that this programme is very challenging, hard hitting and can be emotional for the participants.
