Rarely seen films from the Digital Film Archive “The Ulster Covenant” and “Saorise” (Freedom) produced for the Northern Ireland Government and Gael Linn to mark the 50th anniversaries of the Covenant in 1962 and The Easter Rising circa 1966. The session will consider what is “documented community memory?” As versions of history are shaping the present, there are risks and opportunities in commemorating the decade 1912-22. Will the same versions of history which shaped the present be driving the future?

Exhibition to Mark Anniversary of Women's Suffrage Movement
Between 1912 and 1914, women of all backgrounds, from across all sections of society, campaigned for women to have the right to vote. To mark this campaign, the Northern Ireland Assembly invited post-primary students to create a piece of work celebrating female participation in the democratic process. Competition winners were awarded prizes, and their work is currently on display in the Great Hall of Parliament Buildings.
Competition winners' work will be on display in the Great Hall of Parliament Buildings from 29 April 2013 to 17 May 2013. Students were permitted to use any format to represent their depiction of the issues surrounding the female suffrage campaign; eg poster, poem, picture, photo, song, video, speech, or essay.
Parliament Buildings is open to the public between 9.00am and 4.00pm Monday to Friday. Free guided tours are available Monday – Friday at 10.00am and 3.00pm.
