Our Development Officer, Rachel Mc Cance is taking part in the 'Memory Walk'  on Saturday 7th September at Stormont to highlight dementia awareness and will continue her work to support dementia friendly museums through training and planning.

Triona White Hamilton, Development Officer co-ordinates the delivery of 'A Brush with Nature' project across 4 local museums in Northern Ireland which has travelled to Fermanagh County Museum and Mid-Antrim Museum already this year. It is currently on display at Limavady Museum in the Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre until 28th September 2019 and will then travel to Clotworthy House from October - November 2019. This project is a celebration of Chinese art and heritage in Northern Ireland, has been developing skills in the traditional Chinese watercolour art tradition, helping to better understand the heritage of the Chinese community in Northern Ireland, aswell as engaging wider audience to the museums. We are grateful to National Lottery Heritage Fund for supporting this project.
