Official Opening of Sharing Stories exhibition at Regional Cultural Centre Letterkenny

Published on:  16 Nov 2011

Last Friday saw the official opening and launch of the Sharing Stories exhibition at the Regional Cultural Centre in Letterkenny. Attended by over 100 guests, the exhibition features some of the digital work produced by the International Fund for Ireland supported Sharing Stories programme.

Sharing Stories is a cross-border community film project in County Donegal and Derry City, led by the Regional Cultural Centre Letterkenny in partnership with the Nerve Centre Derry. The project’s aim is to utilise digital media to contribute to positive relationship building and to develop greater understanding and reconciliation between the two main communities (and new migrant communities) in County Donegal and Derry City.

Funding for the Sharing Stories project has been largely provided by the International Fund for Ireland under its Building Bridges, Community based Economic and Social Regeneration Programme.

Over 200 people from diverse backgrounds across Donegal and Derry City are participating in a range of activities, covering community relations workshops, digital media training workshops, short film production, development of the Sharing Stories website, together with the launch of this major exhibition, currently taking place at the Regional Cultural Centre.

Both the Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny and the Nerve Centre Derry have established excellent reputations as leading centres of excellence for the arts and multimedia sectors.  

The event was well attended by government representatives, councillors, community leaders and distinguished guests.
