Event description

Description

A workshop for people with stories from the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

Join this workshop using material from the Prisons Memory Archive to explore how to identify, source and exhibit individual stories about conflict, and examine how storytelling can contribute to issues of understanding the ‘other’ in a divided society.

The Archive, filmed during the conflict in Northern Ireland, features a collection of 175 filmed walk-and-talk recordings from a range of participants, including prison staff, prisoners, relatives, teachers, chaplains, lawyers, doctors, probation officers and maintenance staff.

These recordings capture how everyday life was impacted by the conflict and builds a rich tapestry of the story of the prisons, as well as those who had a connection with Armagh Gaol, the Maze and Long Kesh Prison.
