Give everyone a flipchart sheet and a flipchart/colouring pen. Explain the following:
We are all part of a community in which we have lots of relationships and play different roles – for example, in our families, workplaces or faith communities, and in our networks of friends and acquaintances.
Explain the following:
We are going to try drawing our personal networks. Draw yourself in the centre of the paper and then draw your networks on different parts of the paper.
That could be:
Family and friends.
Your workplace and colleagues/school and schoolmates.
Your faith community, and any other community groups you belong to – perhaps through a hobby like a sports team, or women’s group. They could be formalised groups or just informal networks.
Your network on social media.
For each of the groups or networks you identify, think about the kind of role you could play to promote freedom of religion or belief in or through that setting. You have 10 minutes.
Ask everyone to stand in a ring and hold up their drawings. Make comments about how rich and interesting the pictures are – and how they illustrate the many different roles we play in life and the opportunities we have to protect and promote the right to FORB for all.
(If you have time, you can extend this exercise to include a round of sharing, asking each person to share one way in which they think they could promote FORB.)
