Like most other countries, policing in Northern Ireland is complex stemming from a bitter conflict, known as the Troubles 1969-1998. As a result of the Troubles negative opinions and bitterness towards the police are embedded in the mindset of many people. Elaine Forde, Project Director at The Playhouse Derry, will showcase two projects which aim to explore how the arts interface between police and communities in Northern Ireland, and enable communities and police to humanize one another.
