In Autumn of this year Encompass is launching a series of lectures, discussions and workshops with the over-arching theme of peace and reconciliation.
The first of these is on Thursday 21st November when we welcome two quite incredible people - Jo Berry and Patrick Magee from Building Bridges for Peace. Jo is the daughter of MP Sir Anthony Berry, who was one of the five people killed in the bombing of the Grand Hotel in Brighton 29 years ago. In her quest to understand those responsible, Jo met Patrick Magee, the man who planted the bomb. As they listened to each other's story they came to realise that this was the beginning of another journey in which they have committed themselves to exploring and promoting non-violent solutions.
Jo and Patrick now work together around the world and have spoken together over 100 times faciliating workshops which enable dialogue between opposing groups and giving talks on conflict resolution and alternatives to violence.
