    Permanent rotating exhibition:Conflict Textiles collection: Magee Campus Library, Ulster University
    Description: This collaboration between Conflict Textiles and Ulster University evolved from a number of joint ventures over the last decade, in particular: Textile Accounts of Conflicts (hosted by INCORE - 2014) and Textile Language of Conflicts (facilitated by CAIN - 2017). As far back as 2008 CAIN developed, and continues to maintain, a digital archive of Conflict Textiles and events, which was upgraded in 2015 to its present format.

    Several Ulster University colleagues were involved in bringing this permanent rotating exhibition to fruition and sustain it on an ongoing basis: Rosina Doherty-Allan, Magee Campus Library Manager; Professor Brandon Hamber, John Hume and Thomas P. O'Neill Chair in Peace; Professor Gillian Robinson, Research Associate ARK and; Professor Malachy O'Neill, Provost of the Magee campus, who facilitated the initial contact.

    Commencing on 25th August 2020, two textiles from the international Conflict Textiles collection were exhibited, coinciding with the online exhibition and seminars Following the footsteps of the disappeared (2020). These pieces are rotated each semester, ensuring a permanent Conflict Textile presence focused on key elements of human rights and conflict.
    The current installation marks the start of the exhibition Following the footsteps of the disappeared 2021.
