Drawn from the art collection at National Museums NI, Troubles Art provides a broad representation of responses to the Troubles by a range of artists from Northern Ireland and beyond. The subjects, themes and meanings of the works are diverse and offer the perspectives of the artists themselves.
The Troubles Art exhibition will begin at Nerve Visual in Derry~Londonderry and tour to four border county locations as part of Making the Future, a cultural heritage project from Nerve Centre, National Museums NI, Public Record Office of Northern Ireland and Linen Hall Library. Making the Future is a project supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
Running alongside the exhibition will be a series of six-week long cultural engagement programmes, allowing the public to engage with the artworks and artists, visit sites such as the Ulster Museum and take part in artistic, digital and creative workshops.
The next engagement programme begins in Derry~Londonderry on 23 January 2019 and is free. For more information, contact Donal McAnallen, Community Engagement Officer at National Museums NI: firstname.lastname@example.org or 078 2632 8065 or complete the registration form below:
