An Arts conference exploring how the arts can cast light on the hidden face of the peace.
As Belfast prepares to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, the iceberg (the great ship's nemesis) provides an apt symbol for Northern Ireland's continuing peace process. Above the surface is the public face of the peace, but what of the great mass of untold and often problematic stories hidden beneath the official version?
For ‘Nine Tenths Under', The Playhouse ICAN International Culture Arts Network Derry- Londonderry and the School of Creative Arts at Queens University, Belfast will bring together creative artists, academics, students and a range of different communities across the city to explore how the arts can cast light on the hidden face of the peace, not just in Northern Ireland but other societies emerging from a history of conflict, including South Africa and the Balkans.
Events will include specially devised performances, talks, seminars and round-table discussions. All events will be free and all are welcome to attend, especially community leaders and members, ex-combatants, students and artists of all kinds.
