About The Exhibition

‘Samhain: shadows, sounds & stories’ is the culmination of a series of workshops with three groups of older people: one each based in Dublin, Mayo and Belfast.

The participants collaborated with professional musicians, creative-writers and a photographer in response to their reflections on the Celtic festival of Samhain.

Belfast Exposed was delighted to be part of this collaboration working with the Ballybeen Women’s Centre, Dundonald in east Belfast. Following a visit to the Ulster Museum, they worked with Community Photography Coordinator, Mervyn Smyth to photograph sites such as Navan Fort and Lough Foyle.

‘Samhain: shadows, sounds & stories’ will be launched by Heather Humphreys, T.D. Minister for Arts, Heritage & the Gaeltacht at the National Museum of Ireland– Archaeology, Kildare Street, Dublin on Wednesday 19 November. The exhibition will be on display from Thursday 20 November to Sunday 7 December inclusive.

Admission is free and all are welcome.
