Corrymeela Community, in County Antrim in Northern Ireland, is celebrating 50 years of peacemaking this year with a summer festival called Aperture – a space through which light travels (Friday 31 July to Sunday 2 August). These are almost exactly the same dates as Peace News Summer Camp (Thursday 30 July to Monday 3 August)!

The two events also have very similar themes. Peace News Summer Camp's theme this year is 'On Common Ground'. Corrymeela's 'festival of diversity, art, debate, politics, faith, music and celebration' will celebrate local and international peace building and: 'We will celebrate our common ground and our differences'!
