UNIFORM NOVEMBER is a consultancy place where we:
Explain how the built environment has a role in peacebuilding and social cohesion
Explain how buildings might be perceived as ex-combatants
Offer strategies of collaboration and co-creating between stakeholders whilst helping to identify new actors in a peacebuilding or social impact project
Identify and map the everyday buildings that have social importance or cultural significance - developing ‘fabrics of place’ which are important locally and within a wider context of nation-building and social cohesion - a fabric of places that recognise and acknowledge the past.
Map social dynamics and identifying areas of potential contention
Explore a narrative that purposely avoids blame or the positioning of 'victim versus perpetrator' rather focusing on the context in which violence surfaced and how to avoid it in the future.
Explore the notion of community and explain the potential of networked people
Our UNIFORM NOVEMBER blog below is a knowledge transfer feed aimed at developing collaboration dialogue and awareness...
““whatever is true for space and time, this much is true for place: we are immersed in it and could not do without it. To be at all - to exist in any way – is to be somewhere, and to be somewhere is to be in some kind of place”.
"No one therefor can conceive anything, but they must conceive it in some place”.

The Barns Ness Lighthouse is an excellent place to base the consultancy. Although, draughty and a little run down, it is imbued with plenty of memory and meaning. A redundant building looking for a modern re-use and social reintegration. A structure built to warn humanity of hazards and give guidance in moments of turmoil and uncertainty.
