Calling Actors and Storytellers:
As part of our Building a Stronger Britain Together Counter Narratives (BSBT) project we worked with a small number of groups to identify what extremism means in day to day experiences. This has covered issues of what it is like to be a victim of bullying because you behave differently, or have a stigmatising medical condition.The project then experimented with the idea of creating counter narratives to combat prejudice.We are now inviting applications for this work to create a story or piece that encapsulates some of the 15 or so narratives that have been created. This is then to be performed in public spaces as part of a human library, with the format to be decided with the performer (either storytelling, video, or a presence in a public café, or public setting).

COUNTER NARRATIVES: This is short film that shows some of our work of using simple technologies and processes to create localised counter narratives that challenge extremist views.
