Title
Remembering 'Petals of Hope' (collection)
Description
The Remembering 'Petals of Hope' project (2013-14) produced a collection of 15 audio visual and 23 written stories related to the Omagh Bomb (15 August 1998). The work involved in conducting the interviews and producing the recordings was carried out by Carole Kane and Malachi O'Doherty.
Carole Kane, a freelance artist / community arts facilitator, was involved in the original 'Petals of Hope' project (1998-99) in association with Omagh District Council, which, with the assistance of children from Omagh, transformed floral tributes left at the scene of the bomb into handmade paper and art work. This resulted in an exhibition in the spring and summer of 1999 and the publication of the exhibition catalogue entitled 'Petals of Hope' (1999).
