Exhibition about “The F-Word” launches in Stoke Newington

A powerful photographic exhibition recounts real life stories from victims and survivors affected by violence and tragedy, along with perpetrators of crime, to depict forgiveness as an alternative to revenge.
The F-Word’s 22 contributors include Linda Biehl, whose daughter was killed in South Africa and now works alongside her daughter’s killers and Bud Welch, whose daughter was killed in the Oklahoma City bombing and went on to campaign against the death penalty for those who orchestrated it.
The thought-provoking exhibition which will be displayed in the Listening Place at Stoke Newington Methodist Church, was created by The Forgiveness Project, a charity exploring forgiveness in the face of atrocity.
The exhibition will be the last at the church before before it is rebuilt.
Rev Cathy Bird said: “ It is hoped that the exhibition will help provoke discussion around the subject of forgiveness, reconciliation and restorative justice as the church moves into a new chapter in it’s history.”
