Women's Vision from Across the Barricades : A Visual Representation of the Tigers Bay and New Lodge Areas of North Belfast by Women Who Live There

Jolene Mairs Dyer, Eileen Weir, Margaret Valente, Catrina Campbell

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

In late 2014, a group of women who live in Tigers Bay and New Lodge came together to offer visual representations of their localities as a means of highlighting issues affecting interface areas of the 'post'-conflict city. A key critique of the Northern Ireland peace process agenda has been the exclusion of women in its formation and implementation (Ward, 2013). This photobook, which was created in the complex context of post-conflict Belfast, highlights women's experiences within their own locality. Its primary focus is encouraging women to become proactive agents in addressing the legacy of the Troubles, thereby promoting the inclusion of their vision in the political public sphere. These photographs represent issues that this group of womenwish to be taken forward as the peace process progresses. In a wider political culture of promoting external investment and economic growth in Northern Ireland, it is essential those communities most affected by the conflict remain central to adressing its legacy. This photobook aims to play a role in ensuring that this remains the focus of the post Good Friday Agreement political agenda.
