Laurence McKeown's Life As An Interface will screen as part of the Belfast Film Festival on Sunday 10th June at 3pm in QFT.
The Skegoneill Glandore Common Purpose project sits on an interface area in North Belfast. It has no ‘peace wall’ to separate communities yet contains the same mix of population that in other areas has meant the erection of a wall, many of which have gone up “post peace process".
The chair of Skegoneill Glandore Common Purpose is an American woman now resident in the area; the vice-chair is a former loyalist life-sentence prisoner; two of the staff recently employed are from a republican background. All are committed to ensuring the success of the project and to making the community a shared space and common ground.
