Marina Cantacuzino

Founder, The Forgiveness Project

Marina Cantacuzino’s background is journalism and in 2003 –- in the lead up to the Iraq War -- she started collecting personal stories of atrocity and terrorism which drew a line under the dogma of vengeance. The stories formed a body of work in the celebrated F Word exhibition and led to Marina founding The Forgiveness Project, a UK based not-for-profit unaffiliated to any religious and political group. The Forgiveness Project explores forgiveness and reconciliation through individual real-life stories, and promotes alternatives to violence and revenge.
