Borderlands by Holywell Trust | NICRC

An exciting new exhibition delves into what it means to live and work in the border areas of Northern Ireland.

Holywell Trust with Derry City & Strabane District Council are facilitating a special one-day programme focused around their BORDERLANDS exhibition. Holywell Trust is core funded by the Community Relations Council.

“This exhibition, which Holywell Trust was involved in developing, captures the reflections on what living along the border means to 22 people from the local community,” said Gerard Dean, Director of Holywell Trust. “The exhibition will remain on display in the Holywell - DiverseCity Community Partnership building in the heart of Derry/Londonderry for the rest of the month of March – and is free to visit!”

And the one-day programme, which takes place on 15 March 2022 will include a visit to important sites along the border, as well as a viewing of the exhibition, and further discussions.
