The Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s online archive of art relating to the Troubles offers a vivid and compelling picture of artists’ responses to this darkly defining chapter in Northern Ireland’s history.
From celebrated artists such as Seamus Heaney and FE McWilliam, the archive is interactive and engaging, includes artists’ biographies, authoritative essays, contextual analysis, poetry, film clips and a timeline of key events.
The Archive covers most areas of the arts, including visual art, literature, theatre, music, TV and film. The archive in its current state is a work in progress and further artists and work will be added to the archive over time.
