Title
The Memory Project (collection)
Description
"The Memory Project is an exciting, innovative arts programme that uses drama and theatre to deal with the past and build pathways for the future and to promote peace, reconciliation and mutual understanding in Northern Ireland and the southern border counties.
The project is run by Smashing Times Theatre Company in collaboration with Corrymeela Community / Irish Peace Centres and is funded through the EU’s European Regional Development fund through the PEACE III Programme for Peace and Reconciliation managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.
The project consists of a series of creative storytelling happenings, workshops and dramatic performances, along with a television documentary which will be made to record the process." (from the Smashing Times Theatre Company website)
In addition to the 12 filmed interviews (involving 15 interviewees), the project also produced an hour-long documentary entitled 'The Memory Project: Stories from the Shadows' which documented the work of the theatre company, over the course of two years, as it carried out the project.
Two theatre productions were also presented as part of The Memory Project.

Title
Smashing Times Theatre Company Ltd. (organisation)
Description
"Smashing Times is a professional theatre and film company involved in performance, training and participation. The work is underpinned by a rights-based approach and a commitment to artistic excellence and social engagement. The company has four high profile patrons – Sabina Higgins, Áras an Uachtaráin First Lady; Joan Freeman, CEO, Pieta House; Ger Ryan, Actor; and Tim Pat Coogan, Author and Historian.
The company was established in 1991 by a group of women actors, who met at the Focus Theatre, Dublin. These women were interested in challenging the elitist position that theatre sometimes holds in Irish society. Today the work takes place at local, national and transnational levels and is presented in a range of settings from the professional theatre space to on tour in schools and communities where we are invited to work with people collaboratively." (from the Smashing Times Theatre website)
Smashing Times has undertaken a number of projects and The Memory Project (2012-2015) involved story-telling related to the Northern Ireland conflict.
