Summary

At a time of growing social divisions, The Forgiveness Project has gained a reputation for using narrative and storytelling techniques as a way to reach across the rifts of race, faith and geography. One of the ways we do this is through our internationally-renowned travelling exhibition The F Word: Stories of Forgiveness. The collection uses real stories of forgiveness from around the world to challenge black and white views and build bridges between people.

Challenge

The conversation in our culture seems increasingly focused on retaliation and revenge - we are constantly confronted with images of hurt, harm and trauma, and "us vs. them" rhetoric clouds complex conflicts. There is an urgent need to change this lens, with a focus on deeper and more nuanced exploration of issues.

Solution

Crucial to our ethos is that we explore rather than persuade, presenting opportunities for individuals to reflect on their own lives. The F Word: Stories of Forgiveness opens up conversations. Drawing together voices from across the world it examines forgiveness as a healing process, a path out of victimhood and, ultimately, a journey of hope.

Long-Term Impact

At the heart of The Forgiveness Project is the understanding that these restorative narratives have the power to transform lives; not only supporting people to overcome unresolved grievances, but also building a climate of tolerance, resilience, hope and empathy in the long run.
