Creating empathy and transforming conflict

Tuesday 10 June 17.00 – 19.00. Followed by a reception.

Lynne and Simon travelled together to Kenya and Nepal as part of the collaborative research project that produced Empathy Dynamics in Conflict Transformation: A manual, collecting stories of change from peace-builders and people involved in violence. An opportunity to see the manual and hear the stories behind it.


An impulse to empathy

Jo Berry and Patrick Magee in conversation with Michael Appleton

Wednesday 11 June, 15.00 – 17.00. Followed by a reception.

In 2001, Michael Appleton made a BBC documentary about the first meetings between Jo Berry, whose father was killed in the Brighton bombing in 1984, and Patrick Magee, then a member of the IRA, who planted the bomb. Watching that documentary, and hearing the metaphors used by Jo and Pat, sparked Lynne Cameron’s interest in their dialogue and opened up the rich seam of research featured in the exhibition, eventually leading to the manual. Now a psychotherapist, Michael Appleton is reunited for the first time in 13 years with Jo and Pat, with the opportunity to explore how their relationship has evolved.
