A media production company is on the lookout for objects that explore the role of the Anglican community over the past 100 years in the history of the island of Ireland.
“We’re currently producing a social history project in partnership with RTE and the National Museum of Ireland called National Treasures,” said producer Ciaran Deeney.
“The project is a campaign to collect objects in personal possession that reveal the history of the island of Ireland over the past 100 years.”
The digital archive can be viewed at www.nationaltreasures.ie
Ciaran said the project would form a TV show and an exhibition in 2018. There will be roadshows across Ireland in October 2017 in Galway, Dublin, Belfast and Cork. The Belfast Roadshow will be held in the Andrews Gallery, Titanic Quarter, from 10am to 5pm on October 22.
Ciaran said: “We launched the project two weeks ago and it has become apparent that certain aspects of our shared history are currently under-represented or not-represented.
“We would really love to uncover objects that explore the role of the Anglican community over the past 100 years in the history of the island of Ireland.”
Anyone with an object that might be of interest should visit the website or contact Ciaran at firstname.lastname@example.org.
