Last week I was in Perth at the Scottish Centre for Conflict Resolution Youth Event entitled Stop Talk Listen. My job was to document the event in sketches and to help facilitate group activities, the output of which would be expressed in illustrations. As always with my work for the SCCR I was both moved and humbled by the vital job they do and by the stories of the young people at the event. I’ll be able to post up some of the documentation work here as it gets finished over the next few weeks.
The event marked the starting point of a national campaign entitled Stop Talk Listen, all about raising awareness of conflict resolution amongst young people. The illustration above is one I did for the campaign and you can see it in situ on the Stop Talk Listen site here. As part of the campaign the SCCR are looking for people to send in their most common arguments. It’s a bit of fun and a great way of getting the conflict resolution message across. Do head over to add your argument – it’s a great cause.
