The Office of the First Minister and the Deputy First Minister invited me to create a series of public and private workshops – to show that great things can happen when people work together.

The groups we worked with included non-profits, campaign groups, membership groups, schools and prisons.

I hope you can see how much the project achieved.

I’m really proud to have been part of it.
