Island Voices

Island Voices is an annual lecture series which seeks to explore the languages, cultures and heritages of these islands with a particular emphasis on the Irish and Ulster-Scots traditions. Each series features three public lunchtime lectures by guest speakers who are invited to present on a given theme.

Many of the themes connect to events and histories of wider regional and national significance and endeavour to provide opportunities for the public to explore our shared linguistic and cultural heritage. Island Voices is funded by Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Good Relations Programme and delivered by Council’s Language Services in partnership with Council’s Heritage and Museum Services.
