Did you know there are more than 30 Derry~Londonderrys scattered around the world from as far south as Chile and Australia and north to Canada and in between, the Caribbean islands.
As part of the UK City of Culture Year, Foyle Civic Trust is hosting a conference o the experience of diaspora and emigration from the Maiden City and North West Ulster. The conference will feature a range of local and international speakers, including Richard Holmes, town historian from Derry~Londonderry, New Hampshire, USA, and Professor Don MacRaild, who has just been appointed Professor of History at the University of Ulster.
The project also aims to increase our understanding of our international historical links with these other Derry/Londonderrys, particularly in New Hampshire ,USA.
The project in particular hopes to foster transatlantic links that will increase sustainable development opportunities based on our shared heritage.
