In January 2004, the first exhibition of The F Word: Images of Forgiveness opened at the Oxo Gallery in London.

The exhibition is called The F Word because in the process of collecting these stories, from both victims and perpetrators of crime and violence, I'd come to realise that forgiveness cuts public opinion down the middle like a guillotine; it is a word that inspires and affronts in equal measure. Since its launch, this exhibition of personal testimonies and portraits has provided insight and inspiration to people all over the world, from prisons to schools, and from faith communities to corporate institutions. The Stories aim to open up a debate around forgiveness, calling into question our often fixed beliefs about right and wrong, good and evil, justice and morality. (from the Foreword)

Also see The Forgiveness Project and The Forgiveness Toolbox and the Church Matters Podcast on Forgiveness.
"Forgiveness does not mean condoning what has been done. It means taking what has happened seriously and not minimising it; drawing out the sting in the memory that threatens to poison our entire existence. In these forgiveness stories there is real healing." (Archbishop Desmond Tutu)
