Public meeting to start major ‘people’s history of Galway’ project

The Galway City Museum, the Galway Arts Centre, and the Town Hall Theatre, are joining forces to mount a major celebration on the history and heritage of the city.

The museum, arts centre, and theatre are calling on volunteers from across the city to help research exhibitions, build sets, gather information, help with art projects, and present family heirlooms for what will be the largest community project of its kind ever seen in Galway.

The aim is to produce a clear picture of the history of Galway, from the mouths of its own people, which will be presented through art, film, and drama, and with the central story on display in the Galway City Museum.

An open meeting on the project will take place in the Galway City Museum on Thursday October 7 at 8pm. The public is invited to attend and state what they feel should be covered in such a project.

The meeting will also seek volunteers and project leaders who would like to work with any of the three cultural institutes to progress this idea. For more information see
