extraORDINARYwomen workshop

extraORDINARYwomen is a groundbreaking collections-based community driven heritage project of engagement, creativity and skills development.

This workshop explored the often untold stories of women’s experiences and contributions to Northern Irish society. Participants had a unique opportunity to learn from the Linen Hall Library’s rich Political, Literary, Theatre and Performing Arts, LGBTQ+, and Traveller’s archives, and add their own creative responses and stories to the permanent collection.
