The Ulster Museum has the largest collection of artworks that relate to the Troubles. Throughout the period of conflict and up to today, artists have responded to the conflict through their artistic practice. Drawn from this collection, the Troubles Art exhibition 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.

Troubles Art is currently touring border county locations as part of the Making the Future project. This project is supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV programme, which is managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).





A series of six-week cultural engagement programmes will run alongside the exhibition, 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 will begin in Fermanagh from September 2019 and is free. For more information, contact Niamh Baker at National Museums NI: or 028 9039 5285 or complete the registration form below:
