Inclusive Global Histories 2

Inclusive Global Histories is the start of a journey that Ulster Museum is taking towards decolonisation, diversity and inclusion.

Through this exhibition, Ulster Museum is re-evaluating its World Cultures collection, to better understand the complex global stories of some 4,500 items – how and why they came to be in Northern Ireland, the ways in which they connect to our audiences and what the options might be for these items in the future.

Working in partnership with others, Ulster Museum is re-examining its collections and sites and seeking to address racism and exclusionary practices. The aim is to help highlight and redress the injustices of the past and face up to uncomfortable truths. Through Inclusive Global Histories, Ulster Museum will bring marginalised voices and stories to the fore, exchange ideas, and learn from others to encourage mutual respect and understanding.

The exhibition is divided into three sections;

  1. Telling stories from the past
  2. Challenging our present
  3. Shaping our future

Reimagine Remake Replay: Power to the Young People 6

Reimagine Remake Replay (RRR) is a ground-breaking creative programme that has connected over 4,000 young people with heritage, through creative media and the latest digital technologies. This unique partnership is led by Nerve Centre, National Museums NI, Northern Ireland Museums Council and Northern Ireland Screen and is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund’s Kick the Dust programme.

The project prides itself on its youth-led approach, ensuring museums are spaces where young people’s voices are heard, where their ideas are realised and where their heritage can be creatively reimagined, remade and replayed.

To showcase the project as it comes to an end, a group of young people who have been active contributors to RRR were recruited to engage in a co-curation process, resulting in this first-of-its-kind, co-created exhibition at The Ulster Museum.

The exhibition features a range of digital interactives and creative activities including a VR experience, a bespoke AR app and projection mapping, to engage visitors with collections under the themes of Climate Justice, Arts & Wellbeing and LGBTQIA+ Rights.
