St Ethelburga’s Centre for Peace
St Ethelburga’s exists to transform conflict and division into new relationships and peaceful communities. They see peace as not simply the cessation of conflict, but as an active, dynamic state in which people collaborate and cooperate with each other across differences of all kinds – including those of culture, religion, ideology, class and discipline. Their work explores and strengthens the values needed to move from conflict to cooperation: by creating a unique space for dialogue and encounter; by offering training (in group facilitation, conflict resilience, community reconciliation, and other tools such as narrative and story); by offering direct support to communities experiencing conflict and through music and the arts.
These strands are present within their projects, events, and services.
