Rhythms of the Year

Join National Museums Northern Ireland and be part of Northern Ireland’s Cultural Olympiad initiative Rhythms of the Year, which is part of Stories of the World, a major Cultural Olympiad project. This unique initiative will showcase the seasonal celebrations of our multi cultural society.  

  • You can join in by emailing photographs to us that show your favourite seasonal celebrations or times of year. From Holi to Hallowe’en to Hanukkah, (and everything in between) we want to showcase how the people of Northern Ireland commemorate important occasions in their Life Calendars.   
  • Between 26th September 2009 and 5th November 2010, we will host an Online Gallery dedicated to the passing seasons and the way these are celebrated and enjoyed in Northern Ireland by our diverse community.
  • A selection of photographs taken between these dates will form a touring exhibition that will visit a range of venues throughout Northern Ireland.

The Online Gallery will also become a record of a year of celebration in Northern Ireland in the run up to the London Olympics, 2012.
