Events Coming Up, Spring/Summer 2014!

12th May 2014

We have a number of events coming up in the near future:

Talking to Your Enemies

We are hoping to arrange a ‘Talking to Your Enemies’ evening with Jo Berry and Pat Magee. Jo and Pat have been on an fascinating journey of reconciliation, following the death of Jo’s father in the Brighton Bomb attack in 1984, which Pat was responsible for. They now work together in the Forgiveness Project. This seminar is open to all young adults – please contact Ciaran for more information at cmclaughlin@slig.co.uk, or call 028 9062 9146.

Bytes Project

We have also began partnership working with the Bytes project with a view to helping local young people, 16-24 years old, who are not in education, training or employment .

Youth Work Module

After two very well-received runs of our ‘Youth Work in an Interface Setting’ Module in University of Ulster, we now have plans to deliver it for a third time, commencing October 2014. This will be delivered as part of UUJ’s ‘Youth and Community Work’ course.

‘Us and Them’

Together with the Workers Educational Association (WEA), are delivering an OCN Level 2 in ‘Us and Them’, commencing May 2015. For more information about this please contact Neil McKee on nmckee@slig.co.uk, or call 028 9062 9146.

Our hugely popular Cross-Community Bingo returns again! The first will take place on Friday 20th June in Horn Drive Community Centre. The second event, to take place in Suffolk, will be confirmed nearer the time so look out for it being advertised on Facebook and Twitter.

Multi-Sport Events

We regularly facilitate multi-sport events where we bring young people together to sample traditional and non traditional sports, and explore the similarities and differences between them. The first community event takes place the last weekend in June, with venue to be confirmed. For more information please contact Neil at SLIG.
