The GOAL project will provide opportunities for reconciliation within and between communities by focusing on building positive and lasting relationship by:
- Building partnerships between the local communities, Derry City Council, the Public Sector and Statutory Bodies.
- Delivering workshops, courses, peace and reconciliation training, history, research, interview and drama presentations.
- Providing opportunities for participants to access holistic techniques that assist in the process of psychological healing.
- Providing opportunities for participants to overcome personal issues such as trauma, suffering, loss, hurt and isolation.
- Organising joint ventures and joint discussions around experiences of suffering through the years of conflict.
The GOAL project will address the legacy of conflict by providing a platform for mutual learning and awareness by:
- Working initially with the Creggan community in intergenerational and multigenerational projects and events about the past.
- Developing partnerships with nationalist/republican/catholic and protestant/unionist/loyalist communities cross border and international partners.
- Working with the young, elderly, victims of the troubles, and ex-prisoner groups.
- Linking with other organisations to help address the issues of fear, hurt and suffering from the past.
- Facilitating peace building through addressing issues of intolerance, prejudice, cultural and religious difference.
- Raising awareness and acceptance of the rich cultural awareness that exists across the city, the island and beyond.
The Goal project is based at Unit 10 Ráth Mór Centre, Bligh’s Lane. Anyone interested in finding out more about the project can email the email@example.com or contact Terry, Jon or Carol on 028 7126 0118.
