Pádraig Ó Tuama, former leader of Corrymeela, is in Dunedin, 24–26 March, for several public events.
The first is the public lecture, "Corrymeela: A Ministry of Reconciliation Amidst Fractured Communities in Northern Ireland and Beyond".
Long associated with the conflict in and about Northern Ireland, Corrymeela’s mission addresses the human tendency to divide the world into ‘them’ and ‘us.’
Pádraig Ó Tuama is an Irish poet and theologian who brings interests in language, violence and religion to his work. From 2009–14, he led the Corrymeela Community, Ireland’s oldest peace and reconciliation organisation, and he now presents Poetry Unbound with On Being Studios and also has the role of Theologian in Residence for On Being.
