A fully-resourced programme for Secondary School and College-age young people, focusing overcoming all forms of discrimination through dialogue. Using film and historical narative, this intensive, interactive workshop offers a powerful, cross-curricular resource for teachers and community leaders alike.
Aimed at primary school children, this highly interactive, workshop-based project uses the power of radio production to help explore personal, community and city-wide identity. When first introduced to Bristol schools, the resulting exhibition became a celebration of inter-community dialogue.
An opportunity to gather material and artefacts from Bristol’s Muslim and Jewish communities from the 18th Century onwards. This exhibition was a powerful reminder of their positive influence on the City itself and the communities they touched and included a detailed memory ‘map’.
Salaam Shalom’s community dialogue projects have brought Bristol’s Muslim and Jewish communities together with each other and with other communities across the City. These dialogues have fostered understanding, reduced tensions and allowed positive discussion of challenging issues.
Young People’s Festival of Ideas
As part of Bristol’s now well-established Festival of Ideas, this spin-off allowed young people to debate a range of challenging issues they face individually and within their communities. A panel discussion was followed by exciting audience interaction – often leading to some new and innovative ideas.
When university student Sonia Black asked Salaam Shalom to support her volunteering role at Project Harmony, we were only too happy to help. Based between Israel and the West Bank, Sonia helped created safe spaces for young people to learn English together and build lasting relationships.
