Northword Showcase 23rd - 25th June 2022

23rd May 2022


We are delighted to welcome a group of Northword Creatives to Flowerfield Arts Centre from 23-25th June.

These creatives are part of the Storytagging project which is funded by the Northern Periphery & Arctic Programme 2014-2020. The project is led by Robert Gordon University Orkney and spans Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland & Russia

The StoryTagging project combines traditional storytelling with modern technologies to help increase the visibility and reach of creative practitioners working in remote areas.

The project aims to develop a digital platform, a website and app, that will allow creatives to harness the stories that make their area in the Northern region distinct, focusing on place, identity & community; folklore; cultural heritage; landscape & natural heritage.

Northword is the brand name that will be adopted for this digital platform.

Over the last 12 months, Northword has been working closely with these creatives from the Causeway Coast and Scotland to bring their local stories to life through the creation of a final showpiece.

Find out more about the journey of the creatives based in Northern Ireland.
