Our augmented reality project, Real Talk, has continued to deliver interactive sessions to young people from all over the city, raising awareness of far right extremism and challenging stereotypes about Muslim communities. Our partner organisation, Streetvibe Young Peoples Service, recently accompanied Prevent Coordinator Sean Arbuthnot to demonstrate the workshop to senior officials from the Home Office where it was very well received.

In September a Real Talk workshop was held at Leicester City FC’s training ground where the youth team swapped the football pitch for the classroom as they tackled issues such as far-right extremism, Islamist extremism, fake news and stereotyping. They engaged with the subject matter really well and were a credit to the club.
