‘Same Stories’ good relations workshops

A series of creative digital media workshops highlighting community and cultural identities have been organised by Moyle District Council’s Good Relations Programme. Entitled “Same Stories”, this unique programme of workshops will take place across the Causeway, Ballycastle and the Glens areas throughout November, with three free events running in each area.

“Same Stories” will give participants the chance to consider their own legacies and cultural identities, together with those of others living within their communities. The workshops will be lead by experienced tutors from the Workers’ Educational Association, who will provide an introduction to the facts around diversity and teach participants how to develop content and ultimately create a digital story which can be shared with their fellow contributors.

The “Same Stories” Workshops which will be open to both individuals and community group members will take place in the following locations around Moyle:

Ballycastle Area Workshops: Tuesday 8th, 15th, & 22nd November, 7pm-10pm at Moyle District Council Offices, Sheskburn House, Ballycastle.

Causeway Area Workshops: Wednesday 9th, 16th & 23rd November, 7pm-10pm in Bushmills Community Centre, Bushmills.

The Glens Area Workshops: Thursday 10th, 17th & Monday 21st November, 7pm-10pm in the Old Schoolhouse, Cushendall.
