Counter Narratives

Counter Narratives opened dialogue through working with 
community leaders and educators; increasing community 
resilience and ability to safely explore difficult issues 
relating to extreme views through dialogue and enquiry. 
The project challenged negative stereotyping of particular 
communities, and provided tools with which to challenge 
negative views that cause rifts in our communities.
The project took place in three stages:
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: The development of a toolkit for use with communities 
and young people. The toolkit can be viewed and downloaded here
(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. Labs were hosted in partnership with: FACT / Liverpool
Hope University / University of Liverpool / Unity Theatre
(Winter 2017/Spring 2018)
