Life after hate: compassion as the antidote to violent extremism - 3 November 2015
We're delighted to announce we will be resuming our ‘Forgiveness Conversations’ series, continuing with an event on Tuesday, 3 November 2015 at St Ethelburga’s in London.
Life after hate: compassion as the antidote to violent extremism will focus on the personal experiences of those who have been embedded within violence and those whose lives have been impacted by it.
On the panel will be two of our storytellers, Bjørn Magnus Jacobsen Ihler and Arno Michaelis and the event will be chaired by Vidhya Ramalingam.
As communities grapple with people leaving to join ISIS, and an increase in racial violence as Europe accommodates more refugees, this event will look at why it is important to understand what drives people to join movements, but just as importantly, what motivates them to leave, and how we can facilitate the journey away from violent extremism.
Date: Tuesday, 3 November 2015
Time: 6.30 - 8.30pm (doors open 6pm)
Venue: St Ethelburga’s Centre, 78 Bishopsgate, London, EC2N 4AG
Tickets: £15 / £8 concessions

The event will be filmed and available on our website at a later date for those unable to attend.
