Exhibition at Feile an Phobail bridges divide

An exhibition spanning the Falls and Shankill Roads is one of the events that will open this year’s West Belfast Festival — Feile an Phobail.

The exhibition — running between St Mary’s College on the Falls and the Shankill’s Spectrum Centre — shows how everyday objects, including bin lids, coins, bus tickets and milk bottles, were “transformed by the conflict”.

“On the way we pass a lot of murals, memorials and plaques,” Kate Turner, director of the project Healing Through Remembering, told the Belfast Telegraph.

Everyday Objects Transformed by the Conflict, runs until August 11.

The debating highlight of the Festival is set to be the annual West Belfast Talks Back — refereed by BBC journalist Yvette Shapiro.

The big music nights will be held in the Falls Park with acts including Bad Manners. And already the Mary Black concert tomorrow evening at Clonard Monastery has sold out.
