Working closely with the Stop Attacks Forum, Partisan Productions researched and developed a short dramatic monologue and performance which explores the impact of paramilitary control and coercion on marginalised young  men in socially deprived neighbourhoods.

The piece specifically highlights the devastating impact of “paramilitary-style attacks” on victims, their families and wider society.  In response to Covid-19 restrictions on live workshop events we have developed the work as a short animated film.

Conor is intended to offer a  resource to youth and community workers across N. Ireland initiating discussions on issues of paramilitary control and coercion.  We hope to contribute to better public discourse around this issue, in all its complexity,  and to support dialogues involving local communities and the young people who live there.

Anyone interested in discussing the project should please contact Partisan Productions.

Youth In Action, Short Film – Rio Ferdinand Foundation

NI Hyatt Football Tournament 2021: The initiative was part of the Youth In Action programme, in collaboration with the Rio Ferdinand Foundation and UEFA Foundation with the aim to train and support young people by developing leadership skills and taking a lead in tackling inequality and racism in their own communities in Northern Ireland and Ireland.

15 young people from the Syrian refugee community completed a qualification and worked with the NI Hyatt team, partners and volunteers to deliver a family football and cultural event in Portadown People’s Park.

The short film, funded by the Rio Ferdinand Foundation in collaboration with partners and produced by 906 Film, is being promoted to showcase and celebrate the exceptional work carried out by the group so far. This initiative marks the cornerstone of what is planned to be an ongoing programme of youth led citizenship and social action to create a fairer and more inclusive society.

An Ulster Gaelic Bible Film

This event tracks the journey taken by a well-known working-class unionist, Brian Ervine, whose Christian beliefs led him to take an interest in a Bible in the Ulster dialect of the Irish language. We join him in his journey to Donegal to discover the source of the Bible. He learns he has more in common with the locals than he had envisaged. For example, a keen Somme historian, Brian discovers that many Donegal men fought and died for the British in WWI. The programme is an eye-opener for unionists who perceive Donegal to be alien to them and who would not include the county in self-conceptions of ‘Ulster’.
