Join us for the highly anticipated launch of the co-curated exhibition ‘Changemakers: Student and Youth Activism in Northern Ireland’. This event promises diverse and thought-provoking insights from project participants, including students, youth groups, local artists, activists, and The Linen Hall project team.

Changemakers: Exhibition
