‘Do we need a dedicated Museum of the Troubles and Peace in Northern Ireland?’
In 2018 the questions of whether there should be a dedicated museum addressing the Northern Ireland conflict and peace process, and what form it might include, were debated in the press. Since then a project team has developed plans and sought funding to take forward this initiative under the title 'Museum of the Troubles and Peace'. This forum will give an opportunity to two speakers involved with the proposed museum, project-manager Dr Irene Boada Montagut and Director of the Centre for Public History at QUB Dr Olwen Purdue, to present on the progress of the initiative thus far and discuss its ultimate objectives. This is an open forum, delivered online and open to the public and we welcome all constructive questions, comments and contributions in response to the presentations.
