Reflection: Dialogue: Action: – “Expressions of faith in Youth Work”
18 November from 9:30–14:30 in the Britannia Mill, DE22 3BL Derby
An opportunity and reflective space for youth work practitioners of all faiths and none, to gather in exploration, dialogue and recognition of the positive & diverse contribution that faith makes to working with young people in their communities of faith and place.
Through workshops, group discussion, reflective activities and keynote input we will explore key themes including:
The importance of interfaith dialogue with young people in their communities
The spiritual development of young people & practitioners
The tensions and opportunities faith values in professional practice
It is our hope that as delegates we will commit to learning from each other through sharing our journeys and narratives, recognising our blockages and thinking beyond our own known faith communities and reference points.
The day will be facilitated by members of the D2N2 Youth Work Alliance Core Group, including Ian Tannahill, ‘Director of Young People’s Services’ at Blend Youth Project and Angela Brymer, ‘Youth Ministry Adviser’ for the Diocese of Southwell & Nottingham.
We are pleased to welcome the following workshop facilitators, whose knowledge and experience will help to root our reflections and discussion firmly in models of practice:
Jill Appleton: – ‘Development Worker, Birmingham & Schools Consultant’ for ‘The Feast’.
The Feast is a Christian charity based in Birmingham, working to promote community cohesion between young people of different faiths and cultures. http://www.thefeast.org.uk
