ctmConversations That Matter
From April 20 (7pm) to 22 April (2.30pm).

An invitation for young adults from all around the island to engage in a weekend of Conversations that Matter. Meeting old friends, making new friends, diving into the depths of stuff that matters through dialogue, sharing, questions and The Flow Game.

The cost for this weekend is £20.00 (€25.00) – to book your place contact (payment on arrival).

The conversations will be centred around 3 Flow Games run along the following themes:

The Environment – responsibility & possibility
A chance to explore roles, responses, and responsibilities to the environmental concerns of young adults north & south. A chance to converse concerning the experience, action and learning of young adults involved in campaigning for more sustainable ways of engagement

Brexit – complexity and courage
A chance to explore the magnitude of feeling and of cultural shift in the continuing drama of Brexit realities. A chance to converse concerning such things as boundaries, exclusion, cultural history, forced migration and political populism.

Living well Together – cultural shift and empathy
A chance to explore the distancing of people from each other, and the possibility of positive cultural shift. A chance to open questions of empathy and goodness, kindness and compassion – and whether or not these elements have any say in living during the technological age.

This is a chance to hang out at the sea, have your brain and heart engaged in worthwhile and needed dialogue, and contribute to the growth and development of our shared island and world.
