Lisburn Outlook Annual Meeting:
13th January – 2.00 to 4.00p.m.
Your opportunity to give your views on what we have been doing and what we should be doing over the coming year. Your chance to speak your mind!
At Lisburn Outlook’s annual meeting on Saturday, 13th January, 2018, we shall meet to review the past year and plan ahead. In addition, we are delighted to be able to welcome as guest speaker Andy Allen, MLA, whose personal experience of sight loss and other disabilities, and his response to that experience, will be both interesting and inspiring. The Mayor of Lisburn will also be in attendance.
We meet in the Assembly Room at the Lisburn Linen Centre from 2.00 to 4.00p.m. If you think annual meetings are boring, we’d love to prove you wrong. The best way is to ensure that your own contribution livens us up!
Lisburn Outlook will only provide activities which attract you if you tell us what those activities are! Come to the meeting and tell us! If you require any further details, please contact David on 07766 302496 or via Lisburnoutlook@gmail.com.
Storytelling from conflict– lost and found stories
The Public Records Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) have an interesting event entitled ‘Storytelling from conflict – lost and found stories’, taking place in the Belfast PRONI offices on Tuesday 21 November from 12:30-3:30 with a particular focus on a blind and partially sighted audience.
Using the Prisons Memory Archive (PMA) as a backdrop, this workshop will explore layers of meaning in the Maze/Long Kesh site and how this contributes to storytelling from conflict.
During the workshop, which in part is aimed at a blind and partial sighted audience, PRONI will present material related to the Maze/Long Kesh site. Through building up layers of meaning they will seek to understand how stories are lost and found and also explore the important role of archives in understanding our past.
Admission is FREE, however booking is essential. To Register for the event please call 07756 627 007.
