Collecting The Past/Making the Future Digital Exhibition Launch

The launch of a new ​digital version of the Collecting the Past/Making the Future exhibition that was on display at the Ulster Museum in 2020. The new resource is a curriculum-linked and interactive experience that creates a legacy for the exhibition and also brings it to new audiences, including schools.

1000 years on from events that marked the partitioning of the island and the formation of Northern Ireland, the exhibition explores events leading up to and around partition as well as the impact and legacy that period has had on today.

The exhibition and new digital resource explores multiple narratives and provides opportunities for young people to understand the significance of those events and to be better informed about modern-day issues of culture and identity as a result of the events of 100 years ago.

This event provides an opportunity to invite people who might not traditionally use our buildings to come and engage in an event that is specifically targeted to meet their learning needs.

The Droichead Project works with a diversity of communities where learning Irish is not always viewed as traditional, including broadly Unionist communities.

It is an opportunity for young Irish speakers to meet participants from our outreach classes. Senior members of Club Óige are the perfect Irish Language advocates to engage with our outreach participants. The event will be an opportunity to broaden their knowledge of the Irish Language community locally, find out about the young people and speak Irish with them.

This will help them feel more included in the Irish Language community locally and increase their confidence to engage with it. This event will celebrate the linguistic heritage of the area and highlights the shared heritage of the Irish Language.
