Objects, History & Me Exhibition Launches Friday 14 September

Funded by The Pilgrim Trust, Objects, History & Me is an exhibition that explores the experiences of a group of young women living in a post-conflict society.

The project leading to the exhibition aimed to inspire and empower young women, provided access to public spaces and equipped them with new skills.

As well as delving into the Linen Hall Library, the group visited museums and heritage centres throughout Northern Ireland to meet museum curators and staff, and discover what goes on behind the scenes in the world of museums and galleries. The trips were complemented by workshops focused on collecting, conservation and interpretation as well as creative sessions designed to bring out the voices of the group,.

Objects, History & Me is free and runs until 30 September.
