Activity: Other


This, the first exhibition dedicated to an Irish witch trial, explores the story of the 'Islandmagee witches' convicted of witchcraft in County Antrim in 1711. Based on the historical research and creative practice of UU researchers, it uses objects of material culture, historical texts, maps, visual imagery, and the creative and digital outputs of 'Islandmagee Witches 1711 Creative and Digital Project' (w.1711.org): graphic novel, VR, video game, animation, original score. It also incorporates a bespoke art installation. It was funded by Ulster University, AHRC, Connected NI, and Mid and East Antrim Council.
