HISTORY IN THE MAKING: A MASTERCLASS IN DIALOGUE

On Good Friday 2018, the Ulster Museum opened its doors, and its collections, to a new commemorative exhibition 'The Troubles and Beyond'. Displayed across hundreds of objects and images, the gallery documents social, political, and cultural changes in Northern Ireland from the civil rights era to today's post-conflict society.

But what influenced the curators' interpretations of the Troubles? And what historical and curatorial challenges did they encounter as they brought the realities of that past from collection to final exhibition?

Join BBC NI's Marie-Louise Muir as she asks these and other revealing questions in an exclusive interview with the creators of the Ulster Museum's 'The Troubles and Beyond' exhibition, William Blair and Karen Logan.
