Corrymeela believes that people can learn to live and work well together.
We have fifty years of experience working alongside fractured communities, groups who are finding their relationships difficult, addressing relational, societal, structural and power dynamics.
We work alongside people from youth and school groups, family and community organisations, faith communities and political parties. We run group sessions, use experiential play, art, dialogue, work, mealtimes and shared community to help groups to embrace difference and learn how to have difficult conversations. We work alongside visiting university groups as well as groups from other parts of the world who wish to learn from our experience and learn how to apply the Corrymeela lens to the other aspects of fracture in our societies and world. Our residential centre in Ballycastle hosts over 11,000 people a year and our programme staff also travel to work with school and community groups off site.
All of this work helps us learn how to live well together. It helps groups learn how to work well together. Ultimately, the work of Corrymeela helps groups learn how to be well together.
