Road Racing People Exhibition
Libraries NI is delighted to host this new BBC Northern Ireland photographic exhibition, in a number of libraries across Northern Ireland over the coming months, in which internationally renowned motorcycle racing photographer, Stephen Davison, reveals a world behind the racing line.

The exhibition consists of 26 portraits of riders, fans, mechanics and families taken during the 2016 season over a period of 121 days at the Mid Antrim 150, Tandragee 100, Cookstown 100, Skerries 100, North West 200 and Armoy road races.

The exhibition is in collaboration with independent production company, DoubleBand Films, who have also produced a new BBC Northern Ireland TV series that goes inside the world of road racing to accompany it.

Hidden Gems and Forgotten People
What have these in common?
A schoolmaster who inspired a president of Ireland; a female solar astronomer from Strabane with a lunar crater named after her; an Ardglass IRA man given an MBE; a heroic Newry sailor; Strabane’s legless man, a historic milepost in Saintfield; President Kennedy’s Tyrone-born driver on the day he was shot; a church bell with a colourful past, a lough shore housewife?

The answer is they are all to be found in the Hidden Gems and Forgotten People project website, a joint endeavour of the Federation for Ulster Local Studies and the Federation of Local History Societies.

At 2.00 p.m. on Thursday 8 June 2017 in Omagh Library Dr Brian Lambkin, Director of the Mellon Centre for Migration Studies at the Ulster-American Folk Park, will launch the Federation’s Exhibition of the Project, and everyone is invited to attend. It will run until 26 June 2017.

The Exhibition aims to recover to memory and celebrate the many local people, often unsung or faded from memory, who have contributed to their communities. It also aims to document hidden gems, places of local interest that are not on tourist trails. It will encourage people to contribute to the growing catalogue of names and places on the website, from which the Exhibition exhibits are drawn. This will be the fifth of six Exhibitions launched over the past seven months; so far in the Belfast, Ballymena, Derry and Downpatrick Libraries. The next will be in Enniskillen Library in the Autumn.

The Hidden Gems and Forgotten People Project is available at www.hidden-gems.eu
