The “Peace of Mind” Consortium – Beam Creative Network; Venture i Network; BNL Productions and the Northern Ireland Youth Forum – have received funding from the Southern Peace III Partnership through Banbridge Council to deliver the “Laughter Builds Friendship” programme to young people in the Banbridge council area. The programme is aimed to promote Good Relations and use humour in a safe and structured way to address racism and sectarianism.
During this programme Beam Creative Network will work with the Primary Schools and Post Primary Schools in the Banbridge area delivering drama, art and creative writing workshops. We will facilitate a Comedy Drama Programme for the Community Groups in the Banbridge area hosted by “Give My Head Peace” star Olivia Nash!! The programme will conclude with 2 free performances of Wesley Burrowes “Affluence” and a Q&A hosted by our own local TV personality Adrian Logan – a play not to be missed!
