Traveller Living History Exhibition
Fermanagh and Omagh District Council’s Good Relations, in partnership with Western Health and Social Care Trust’s Traveller Health and Wellbeing and Meath Travellers Workshop, hosts a unique Traveller Living History Exhibition in Strule Arts Centre on 21 September.
This interactive exhibition provides a real insight in the lives of Irish Travellers, their history, culture and traditions, by the side of the road in the 1950s. It will feature a restored life-size Traveller barrel top wagon, a canvas tent and a campfire; the facilitators will offer live demonstrations of the traditional craft of tin-smithing and story-telling.
This free public event is an opportunity to learn more about the Irish Traveller identity and culture. It promotes respect and cultural diversity in the spirit of Good Relations Week’s moto of ‘Change Starts with Us’ and Council’s ‘Everybody Belongs‘ Campaign.
