We are 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.

Security in Diversity

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, and promote interaction between different cultures.

The work of Beyond Skin began January 2004 in Northern Ireland responding to the rise in racism & sectarianism influenced by the legacy of conflict.

Flagship programmes include the Orchestre des Réfugiés et Amis & #ArtsDialogue, an international intergenerational team of musicians, artists, producers, writers & peace activists.

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

"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” – Jan O’Neill (Good Relations Officer)
