Celebrating Creativity – Northword Project Showcase

Six creatives were chosen from across Mid and East Antrim & Causeway Coast and Glens areas to bring a local story to life through creation of a showpiece. To mark August Craft Month their work will be on display at Mid-Antrim Museum, The Braid, Ballymena.

Three of the creatives are from Mid and East Antrim, including textile artist Angela Turkington, ceramicist Sasha McVey and storyteller and singer-songwriter Colin Urwin.

Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust and Ulster University are leading the project in Northern Ireland.
