As part of the Imagine Festival of Ideas & Politics, Corrymeela, Healing through Remembering and Ulster University are partnering for a special event to consider the role of story–telling in addressing the past and building a peaceful future. The event will feature a screening of ‘the choices we made: Bystanding & Conflict in Northern Ireland’ a film produced by Corrymeela that explores six true stories of individuals wrestling with how to behave and act when confronted with sectarianism, violence and prejudice (a trailer can be viewed here).

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Q & A on the possibilities of story–telling as a process for dealing with the past. Chaired by Duncan Morrow (UU), the panel will include Graínne Kelly (UU), Claire Hackett (Healing through Remembering & Falls Community Council) and Sean Pettis (Corrymeela).
