Belfast probably without any Stiff Little Fingers tours

I would like to think that I’ve stumbled into a new title as “conflict designer” but this would be slighly presumptious and basically wrong since I don’t design conflicts, but have done things to actually address them. So sure enough, after Rwanda, bits of ex-Yugoslavia and the Ukraine, I’m now going to the same country I already live in, but the bit of it that nobody likes to think about where conflict has been the rule it seems rather than the exception.

I’ll be at the European Association of History Educators annual conference “Reimagining Remembrance” in Belfast next week and talking about designing for understanding and hopefully learning from history, liveability and designing for reading and how the story of the cannons and croissants turned into a platform that hopefully some history educators will be able to use to help kids learn from our past.
