Moment of Inspiration I
The film RESTORATIVE APERITIF is the result of one of the events that took place in Italy during the RJ WEEK 2015. The film shows a local project in Sardinia for creating a restorative community using peaceful restorative ways to understand relationships and deal with conflicts. In the film, we hear (and read) the reflections of students, professors, prisoners, community members who participated in peace-circles and/ or restorative conferences and engaged in this local cultural movement towards the use of restorative justice values and practices in daily life.
Moment of inspiration II

The photo exhibition AU TRAVERS DES BARREAUX (Looking through the bars) is one of the results of the EU-funded project 'Children's rights behind bars'. Pictures have been taken by young people deprived of freedom in a Belgian detention centre. In their testimonies, these young people question the use of confinement and the response that society gives them. Find here more information, also if you are interested in hosting the exposition and receive the photo book.
