    Outcome: This exhibition was first shown in November 2014, as part of the International Conference Accounts of the Conflict: Digitally Archiving Stories for Peacebuilding, hosted by INCORE, Ulster University. Exhibiting it in the Linen Hall Library made it accessible to the general public and both the exhibition and workshops were attended by a broad range of groups and individuals. A secondary outcome was the establishment and development of a partnership with Conflict Textiles which paved the way for the exhibition “War-Torn Children in 2017”.
