After peace agreements have been signed and the military/paramilitary apparatus of hostilities removed often little visible remains in societies as evidence of the conflict that recently took place. But for many who lived through that experience, or had to flee from it, the scars they carry are all too real and ever-present. Regardless of what side they took in the conflict, or none, they now must make sense out of what happened and where they go from here.
The AFTERMATH project uses discussion and creative, artistic approaches to story-telling and life stories to highlight the issues and needs of the participants drawn from the target groups. The AFTERMATH project is not a campaigning or lobbying group on behalf of victims/survivors or displaced persons. It does not hold a view on the politics or morality of the conflict in and about Northern Ireland or in other countries. It is inclusive, and works with participants to highlight their issues and needs and to offer support and advice where possible.
Following it’s launch in the County Museum, Dundalk the exhibition will tour to: Gallery of Photography, Dublin, 30 Oct – 10 Nov; Hollywood Arts Centre, Newry 14 Nov – 30 Nov: Belfast Exposed 5 Dec – 21 Dec.
