Divided communities? What the Brexit future means for people in Salford
Few events have divided and shocked the nation on the same level as ‘Brexit’. The European Union referendum saw Salford vote 56.8% to ‘leave’, far higher than the national average (51.9%). Many have grappled to understand the outcome: how it will impact on a city that has already experienced stigmatisation, and how we can collectively create positive community bonds moving forward. This session will begin by sharing our research findings on a project that examined the views and experiences of ‘leave’ voters in Salford. This will be followed by audience participation: first, facilitated debate and discussion; and second, workshop activity.
