    Facilitator: Accounts of the Conflict project based at INCORE, University of Ulster.
    Outcome: This exhibition, located at the centre of a conference on Digitally Archiving Stories for Peacebuilding, demonstrated the power of textiles to narrate stories of conflict and human rights abuses and further formalised their ability to denounce and bear witness to events when the spoken word is inadequate. Ten textile pieces from Northern Ireland, focusing on the Troubles, are now catalogued in Accounts of the Conflict, a digital archive of personal accounts of the conflict, based in Ulster University.
