The Good Friday Agreement: Work in Progress
12 – 16 April
This exhibition comprised of arpilleras and other textiles, memorabilia and a selection of books, marks the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement.
Conflict Textiles, in partnership with Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council and Ulster University, is delighted to engage with the local community in exploring - primarily through textile language - what the Good Friday Agreement means to us all 25 years on. The agreement was signed on 10 April 1998. It underpins Northern Ireland’s peace, its constitutional settlement, its institutions, and everyday life.
We invite you to actively engage during our 4 days residency; as for the community and each of us there is always space to contribute to further consolidate PEACE.
The exhibition and associated events will take place in the Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre. At the start of each event curator Roberta Bacic will give a short, guided tour tailored to the attending visitors. The events include:
• Film screening: Belfast, Wednesday 12 April, 7pm
• Reception and talk by Professor Emeritus Paul Arthur on the peace process, Thursday 13 April, 7pm
• Hands-on textile workshop for children, Friday 14 April, 2pm
