The Ulster Museum has invited the public in Lurgan to share their experiences of Northern Ireland during the ‘Troubles’ as part of a major new initiative entitled ‘Collecting the Troubles and Beyond.’
The project aims to widen the scope of the museum’s contemporary collection relating to this complex period of Northern Ireland’s history.
The museum is engaging with communities to develop its Troubles archive through a series of community collecting events, collection workshops and outreach activities and is making an open invitation to the public to contribute.
The revamped Troubles gallery, which is due to open in Spring 2017, will provide a broader context to the Troubles period and will examine the wider social, economic, cultural, as well as political, influences which have shaped Northern Ireland.
