Matthew’s Story

150 150 Luke

Client: Applecart Arts
Topic:  Countering Violent Extremism (CVE)

What we did: Like with Manwar’s story we worked closely with Matthew to tell this personal account on film as part of Applecart Art’s InCourage arts programme. Whereas Manwar’s experiences could be explored from the perspective of a former extremist, another part of the jigsaw in understanding + ultimately preventing radicalisation, is to explore the experiences of the victims. In Matthew’s heartbreaking testimony he shared with us just how harrowing it was to lose his partner to a form of religious intolerance to homosexuality.
