Féile Belfast History
Welcome to Féile History, a major public participation project where you help us to piece together the dynamic and complex history of Féile an Phobail.
Féile an Phobail, Queen’s University and community partners including Belfast Media Group, are asking you to help us create an exhibition, a book and an online archive that showcases the dynamism, energy and complex history of the West Belfast Festival since its inception almost thirty years ago.
Contact us with your photos, objects and memorabilia – which we’re glad to scan and make available on the website. Then you and others can log in and tell us more about the things that you see on the site? Where was a photo taken, who is in it, what was happening in the broader social and political context? Does it bring back memories? Was there a particular year that meant a lot to you? A play that changed your perspective or that said things that were important to you and the wider community?
We’re building the website, so for now you can just explore, but from December 2015 you will be able to interact with and upload content, helping us to tell the stories that made Féile the renowned festival that it is.
Write and supply as much or as little as you like – all contributions are welcome – and become part of a wider team that will make Féile’s history as the festival approaches its 30th anniversary.
