Still Under Siege: Telling a Different Story of the Troubles

Through the RoI Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Siege Museum was been offered an exciting opportunity to assess its current visitor interpretation and develop its offer in innovative new ways. In relation to existing tourism and cross-community provision in Londonderry, and anticipated new developments in these areas, the museum wished to explore the potential to provide opportunities for visitors to learn about Protestant and Unionist perspectives on the Troubles within the city. quarto were commissioned to carry out a thorough analysis of this potential, to provide guidance on collecting and interpreting the contested heritage of the Troubles, and make recommendations to enable the museum to maximise opportunities to reach new audiences. The resulting report will be used as the basis for attracting investment and developing a detailed interpretive plan and community engagement programme.
