Date: Tuesday 18th May
Time: 12 noon – 1.30pm
Often at interfaces the disruption caused during unrest causes derelict land and buildings and unsafe environments for the public. The regeneration of interfaces will be the focus of this webinar and how they have become shared spaces throughout the city.
This webinar will be facilitated by Mary Montague, European Representative for Mediators Beyond Borders International. Mary will be joined by Alfie McCrory and Kevin McGarry, who were behind the cross-community initiative for Bradley Manor Care Home where 80 jobs were created for the care home built to support regeneration at the interface. This is an inspiring story of setting aside cultural difference to train together and secure employment.
Also speaking is Seamus Corr and Mark Vinton from Black Mountain Shared Space Project. This project aims to improve both intra-community capacity, well-being, and cross-community relationships in the Upper Springfield Road/Upper Shankill interface area of West Belfast. Seamus will represent the board of Black Mountain Shared Space Project and will discuss the challenges and tensions initially experienced when trying to set up the project.
Finally, we will welcome Joe O’Donnell from Belfast Interface Project who will discuss the exciting, augmented reality app which will “break down mental walls” for virtually and eventually physically uniting communities historically divided by conflict.
Register below to hear from our thought-provoking speakers on work being done at interfaces and the challenges ahead.
