Trust attends launch of Xchange Summer School
Last week, Bill Osborne of the Building Change Trust attended the official programme launch of the inaugural Xchange Summer School.
The Xchange Summer School, set to take place in Enniskillen on 26th and 27th June, is a new and innovative event for people who want to bring about social change in Northern Ireland.
It's for thinkers and explainers of all ages who want time out to have alternative conversations and change the perspective on areas such as the arts, media, liberties and history.
As sponsors of the event, the Trust will be hosting a workshop at the Ardowen Theatre at 3pm on Thursday 26th June, which will act as an ideas generation workshop for some of our upcoming work within our Creative Space for Civic Thinking theme.
The full programme is intended to be challenging with a little bit of fun mixed in. Audience participation is encouraged and social activities will also take place over the two days.
The format of the event will be a series of conversations all linked by a common theme, “Alternative Voices – Changing the Conversation”. They will be focused on four main areas, Arts, History, Freedoms and Media. All conversations will comprise of a panel of well-known contributors each of whom is a leader in their particular field.
Adrian Dunbar, veteran theatre, TV and film actor and Enniskillen native, will be one of the contributors at the event. Adrian’s notable work includes Aufidus in a BBC Radio adaptation of Coriolanus and Summers in BBC hit series Ashes to Ashes. Most recently Adrian can be found on our screens as long-suffering Police Supt Ted Hastings in the acclaimed BBC Crime drama Line of Duty.
