Speeches, Strikes & Struggles: Curating Conflict

Thursday 4 Oct 2018 - 11:00am to Sunday 23 Dec 2018 - 5:00pm

Speeches, Strikes & Struggles: Curating Conflict presents rarely seen collections highlighting the significant events and cultural heritage of the Troubles from 1968 to the present day.

The exhibition will showcase material from the Bridget Bond collection, related to civil rights and housing action, highlighting the roles played by individuals in pursuit of equality, justice, fairness and peace. It will also feature archival material from the Gerry Lynch collection, providing evidence of the activities of socialist movements in the city in support of employment. The newly acquired Peter Moloney collection, which paints an incredible and holistic visual interpretation of culture and identity across Northern Ireland over the past 50 years will also be on display.

An international conference and a programme of talks and workshops encouraging creative expression and promoting understanding of our recent past will accompany the exhibition.

In partnership with Tower Museum and Derry City & Strabane Council.
