Rethinking security / Media - workshops for Quakers and others

Rethinking Security – ideas to action

What is security? Where does it come from? Does my security provide you with security? Indeed, does security secure peace? What are the implications for building peace through non-military means, from local to international levels? This workshop will look at security and insecurity both from the experiences of participants and their communities, as well as from some of the ideas that a range of individuals and groups have developed in recent years. The workshop will provide space to re-envision what security means and consider the practical opportunities and challenges arising from this.

Engaging with the media – changing the narrative for peace

What is the role of news and other media in reflecting and shaping attitudes to peace? This workshop will explore different aspects of engaging with news and other media on peace concerns. It will be a chance to reflect on the change of narrative that is needed and to explore practical ways the skills
and approaches that might be used to this end.

Our workshops

We have created a general framework for each of the four workshops listed here but will plan the content with particular areas of concern, interest and need in mind as appropriate. The aim is to provide support to Quakers and others in reflecting and taking action for peace.
Workshops will be facilitated by voluntary members and paid staff of Northern Friends Peace Board, for between 12 and 25 participants. Our priority is to run workshops in the North of Britain.
We envisage that these will typically take place on a Saturday, in a Quaker Meeting House or similar venue. We are happy to discuss other timings and even other themes.
We suggest a donation of £100 from the hosting group to cover some of our costs, but please contact us if finance is an issue
