OPENING DIALOGUE 
INCREASING COMMUNITY RESILIENCE 
EXPLORING DIFFICULT ISSUES 
CHALLENGING NEGATIVE STEREOTYPES 

Stage One: Free training for community workers, teachers, educators and trainee teachers, 
leading to community workshop delivery with support from our mentors. (Spring/Autumn 2017)
Stage Two: Development of a toolkit for use with communities and young people. (Autumn 2017/Spring 2018)
Stage Three: A series of innovation labs brought together activists, community workers, 
academics, creatives and social media specialists to discuss and explore ways of presenting 
alternative narratives, supported by 'community philosophy' techniques. (Winter 2017/Spring 2018)
The articles below were created by University of Liverpool Media students for the project. 
Topics include diversity, racism, LGBTQ love, white supremacism and more!... 
You could use these as resources in classroom discussions, at debates or in a host of other ways.
