This 1-day conference will draw on experience in both Britain and the Republic of Ireland to offer both learning on a East/West and South/North basis, but will also share practical examples and insights about how local activists can respond to the challenges of polarisation and divisiveness.
Input will be offered by Hope Not Hate (UK); Community Work Ireland; Far Right Observatory (Ireland); Trademark; Parable Communications and Lucy Michael Research.
This is planned as a conference where the local experience of activists and community workers can be voiced and discussed in an open and non-judgemental manner. There will be time for networking and the sharing of resources and support.
Registration for attendance is essential due to a limit on numbers.
