Conflict Cafe pair in discussion
IWM North Conflict Cafe

How are individuals and communities affected by terror attacks? What forms can resilience take? When does trauma divide and when can it unite? Do we live in an age of terror?

Conflict Café: Life After Terror, is a unique opportunity to join invited guests and eyewitnesses in conversations about terrorism, resilience and how people move past trauma. Hear personal stories of those affected by recent national and international terrorist attacks, including 9/11, 7/7 and 2017’s London Bridge attacks.
