About The Forgiveness Project
The exhibition is produced by The Forgiveness Project, a secular charitable organisation that works with people of all faiths, and those of none. The charity works at a local, national and international level to help build a future free of conflict and violence by healing the wounds of the past.
By collecting and sharing people’s stories The Forgiveness Project encourages and empowers people to explore the nature of forgiveness and alternatives to revenge. Many of those whose voices are celebrated in The F Word and on the website, also share their stories in person. The Forgiveness Project works in prisons, schools, faith communities, and with any group who want to explore the nature of forgiveness whether in the wider political context or within their own lives.
