In 1969 the largest evacuation of refugees since World War II took place in Ireland as thousands of people fled across the border to escape the unfolding conflict in Northern Ireland. In subsequent years the border counties continued to be heavily impacted; many people were injured or killed in bombings and shootings whilst others were imprisoned or displaced.

Filmmaker and Aftermath director Laurence McKeown, commissioned photographic artist Anthony Haughey, and music composer Elaine Agnew worked closely with many of these people to produce an exhibition of photography, film, music, and audio.
