National Museums NI’s new exhibition encourages a fresh look at 1968 - a crucial period in Northern Ireland’s history. It is told in the words of some of those most directly involved at the time and includes access to augmented reality video footage.

The project has involved producing filmed testimonies that widen the framework of public memory, supported by contemporary collecting, public programming and the development of new learning resources. Revisiting 1968 challenges assumptions about the inevitability of conflict and opens opportunities for creative dialogue around issues of human rights and political reform that continue to resonate with contemporary relevance.
