Connecting People, Places and Heritage
Connecting Peoples, Places and Heritage, funded under the Peace III Programme, is a cross border project delivered by Cavan County Museum with the aim of exploring the shared and diverse cultural heritage of Cavan and the Border Region.
The heritage Development Officer is responsible for running The Connecting Peoples, Places and Heritage project through Cavan County Museum. The project is funded under Priority 1.1 of the EU PEACE III Programme. Under the County Cavan Peace and Reconciliation Action Plan Strategic priority 2, the project is working to ‘Build Good Relations among our Young people’.
It aims to achieve this by establishing partnerships and facilitating meetings between schools and adult groups in Cavan and Fermanagh. The goal of these meetings is that participants will be able to encounter and explore some of the culture and heritage of their partner.
All of the work undertaken by the participants is being placed on exhibition in Cavan County Museum where a gallery has been given over to the display of project work.
It is intended to use the launch of this gallery to recruit future groups and schools to take part in the project. The gallery will be an important teaching resource for future work.
