Young People Leading the Way Project Launch

Belfast Interface Project and Different Tracks Global are delighted to announce a successful bid for funding through OFMDFM’s 2013-14 Central Good Relations Fund. The project is called, ‘Young People Leading The Way’ and aims to contribute to efforts to reduce tension in the Interface areas around Inner East Belfast by building capacity for young people to move towards taking a peer leadership role in helping build a united communities strategy. 

'Exchanging Perceptions' exhibition opens in the Waterfront Hall - open to the public until October 24th.

Belfast Interface Project is currently managing delivery of the 'Inner East Outer West' project - a collaborative inter-community relationship-building project involving groups and communities, both young people and adults from both sides of interfaces in inner East Belfast and in the Suffolk and Lenadoon communities in Outer West Belfast.

One element within the larger project has been a photography project - the 'Exchanging Perceptions' project.
