National Memory Local Stories

National Memory Local Stories is a project undertaken with a group of young people from the New Lodge area of Belfast which explores how objects from museum collections can help young people and artists respond to the First World War. The group used locally relevant objects from the Ulster Museum, explored the local connections with the Great War and reflected on their own feelings about conflict. Through the creative use of digital media the young people have produced a response which is thoughtful, provocative and insightful.



 
National Memory Local Stories is a project with New Lodge Arts, National Portrait Gallery and National Museums Northern Ireland which has been supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. It also included National Museums Scotland, Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales, Redbridge Museum and The Rifles (Berkshire and Wiltshire) Museum.
