Conference to explore potential of ‘Shared Remembering’

Published: 21st September 2015

A conference which will examine whether learning from the events of 1916 can help build a brighter future will take place in Omagh in November.

The one-day conference, entitled ‘Shared Remembering’, is being organised by Omagh Churches Forum in association with Fermanagh and Omagh District Council.

Dr Eamon Phoenix , a senior history lecturer at Stranmillis College, Belfast and Dr Johnston McMaster, theologian at the Irish School of Ecumenics, will both address the conference.

‘Shared Remembering’ will encourage discussion and dialogue around the legacy of 1916 – the year of the Easter Rising and the Battle of the Somme – and whether pivotal events of the past can create opportunities for a better future through learning and engagement.

The conference will take place on Saturday 7 November 2015 in the Tara Centre, Omagh from 10 am to 4.15 pm. The conference is open to all sections of the community and participants do not need to be affiliated to any church.

To express an interest in attending the ‘Shared Remembering’ conference, contact Pauline Clarke, Good Relations Service, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, by telephoning 0300 303 1777.
