The Forgiveness Project

Visible Thinking has been in partnership with The Forgiveness Project for over 5 years exploring the concepts of conflict and forgiveness through narratives of true live storytellers who have been either victims/survivors of crime or perpetrators. Funded under Youth Music, Visible Thinking embarked on a 18 month programme called Conflict and Forgiveness: a musical conversation. We worked closely with Ashfield Young Offenders, Community Resolve, ACE and the REMIX Ensemble. Below are two films made in response to the processes we were using to look at the impact of storytellers Camilla Carr, Jon James and Peter Miles on musical narratives created by young people.
