Database Of Arts-Related Peacebuilding in Northern Ireland Launched

Art Database | NICRC

Are you an artist or community practitioner with experience of working in arts practices or on projects aimed at fostering peacebuilding or reconciliation?

A new database of Arts-related peacebuilding in Northern Ireland would like to record information on your work.

The research team from the University of Liverpool’s School of the Arts is working in partnership with the Arts Council Northern Ireland and key regional stakeholders to develop an online database of arts-based peacebuilding projects and practices in Northern Ireland from the early days of the peace process (c.1994- present). 

They have designed an online pilot database, which is expected to launch in August 2024. The aim is to provide free public access to information on projects, past and present, for the benefit of future research and development. Practitioner knowledge and information are essential for achieving this goal.

As such, the researchers are holding a series of workshops to invite artists, arts organisations, studio and community groups to hear more about the launch plans, share knowledge and experiences, and learn how to add information on their arts-based peacebuilding and reconciliation projects into the database. There will also be an opportunity to ask the project team about the rationale behind the database, preview database designs, and input your own project’s data.

Workshop Details

The workshops are free and the first in-person workshop is now bookable via Eventbrite:
