How fireworks help us to see a bigger picture

10 November 2014

 

Urban Hope always celebrates bonfire night; it’s one of many seasonal markers we use to punctuate our year. We do this because we like fireworks, we like a party, and we like bringing people together to foster a sense of belonging.

But there is a bigger picture too. By working with the rhythms of the calendar, young people are invited to see themselves within a broader social context: their friends, family and immediate community are part of a larger local community that, in turn, contributes to a wider society of dynamic relationships.

Playing a positive role in society is an important part of overall wellbeing, and looking outwards is the first step in that journey.
