Naomh Gallagher - "We need people to tell the good stories as well as the bad. We need to tell people that there is hope, that there are people choosing to fight for what is right, that there are people making plans to improve our future."
Maria McManus - "I grew up along the border and the added level of poverty that was not only a poverty of finance, economy and opportunity, but cultural. It impacted on our identity, our sense of safety and freedom and our sense of ourselves."
Ziv Gray - "I am not a token. I might not identify in a conventional way, but that doesn't mean I can be used to "spice up" someone's otherwise failing narrative."
Elizabeth Murphy - "Northern Ireland was still Northern Ireland. There were still stories of rioting and certain tensions at that time with marches. 'People are living in the past' was what I thought in 2013 and now in 2017 I find myself saying it again. Before long, I felt that urge to travel again."
