Security in Diversity


Creative Innovators in Peacebuilding: “Enabling the Arts as the dialogue to assist the development of a more peaceful, equal and intercultural society free from racism & sectarianism.”

Through the cohesiveness and chemistry of a diverse team of artists using their gifts for the greater good we design and facilitate innovative creative projects & solutions that strengthen community relations, nurture peace processes, heal trauma and promote interaction between different cultures through diversity and global education.
The work of Beyond Skin began January 2004 in Northern Ireland responding to the rise in racism & sectarianism influenced by the legacy of conflict.
We represent an international team of professional artists, facilitators, educators and technicians passionate about creating positive social change through intercultural music, arts, dance, digital media and sensory engagement.

"If you want a powerful good relations programme in your area and to maximise community engagement, you could do no better than enlist the Beyond Skin team. They are by far the most creative, dedicated and professional delivery agent I have ever worked with” - Good Relations Officer

"With such a diverse team based locally and internationally, we are like a little United Nations but without the guns" - Darren Ferguson (Founder)
