Background

Understanding Our Area – People and Places was a cross-community project supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme. It set out to increase the understanding and expression of our culture and history, our people and places, through museum collections, historic sites and cultural heritage using interpretation, arts and multimedia to create a peace building legacy. The initiative is part of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s PEACE IV Local Area Action Plan, funded by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body, which is providing £3.5 million for community projects across the borough.

Between 2017 and 2019, Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Museum Services supported a range of community-led projects, along with a range of events, showcases and resources exploring the history of the Causeway area.

Greetings from Cushendun

The Cushendun Buildings Preservation Trust investigated the history of Cushendun as a visitor destination from its first development as a bathing resort in the 19th century. Using postcards, photographs, hotel visitor books, and oral reminiscences, they painted a picture of local life and tourism in the village, which was shared through an exhibition and accompanying booklet.

Hardcopies of the Greetings from Cushendun booklet are free and can be picked up from Ballymoney Museum, or by contacting Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Museum Services through this website.

Digital copies of the Greetings from Cushendun exhibition and booklet may be downloaded from RESOURCES.
