Celebration of Hands of History Project

Conference Invitation

Donegal County Council invites you to attend a celebration of the Hands of History Project on Tuesday 12th November 2013 to mark the completion of this year long project.  The event will take place in the Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.  The Hands of History Project has been delivered by Donegal County Council under the auspices of the Donegal CDB Peace and Reconciliation Partnership. 

The conference aims to highlight and celebrate the achievements of the Hands of History Project through drama, photographic exhibits and visual displays. Guest speakers, facilitators, project participants and funders will give inputs about their experiences of the project and the impact of their activities on all involved.  The event will also include a facilitated discussion to take place around “Ethical Remembering: Policy and Practice” which will explore how individuals and groups in Donegal can progress the work of the project in coming years as the decade of commemoration continues and in commemorating other historic events of significance to the county, its Diaspora and beyond.

Project Participants, those with an interest in using history in peace and reconciliation work and the public are invited to attend; we hope that youcan join us for this event.  Please forward this email to others you think may be interested, everyone is welcome.  Thanks to everyone who contributed to the Hands of History Project this year, we hope you can make it to this final event to provide some feedback around the activities that you participated in.
