The Long Note at the Ulster Museum

The Long Note at the Ulster Museum

Date: 28/04/2023 14:00

Due to unforseen circumstances this event will be rescheduled to later in the year. New details will be posted when confirmed.  

Come along to Ulster Museum's Lecture Theatre for a screening of The Long Note (2018), and conversation with film maker Helen Cammock and curator Mary Cremin. 

The Long Note is an attempt to articulate the variety of political positions taken by women during the civil rights movement; there was no one unifying position or one identity but a multitude of voices that permeated a turbulent time in Derry. The Long Note is a partial move towards redressing the lack of the female voice within the historical narrative, and to recognise the need to highlight the centrality of women in what was a pivotal moment in Derry and Ireland’s history.

About Helen Cammock

Exploring social histories through film, photography, print, text and performances, Helen Cammock creates multiple and layered narratives allowing the cyclical nature of history to be revealed. Through these devices, Cammock explores the motivation for women’s participation in the civil rights movement, the invisibility of women in the historical narrative of the time, and how it impacted family life and the notion of loss.
