New Permanent Exhibition

Today we launched a permanent rotating Conflict Textiles exhibit in the Ulster University Library on the beautiful Magee campus. This marks a new stage in our longstanding relationship between Conflict Textiles and the university where we have the online collection on CAIN.

The new exhibit is done in partnership with the John Hume and Thomas P. O’Neill Chair in Peace. The first two pieces connect to the forthcoming ‘Following the Footsteps of the Disappeared’ programme.
