Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Good Relations team is inviting residents on four virtual tours as part of its ‘Through the Looking Glass’ programme.

The project has previously given participants the chance to learn more about different traditions and faiths with visits to a range of historical and cultural locations within the Borough and beyond.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions ‘Through the Looking Glass’ has now moved online, with a series of short films available to view now.

Music, language and culture are at the heart of Glór Leim a Mhadaidh

Take a virtual tour of the Cuil Rathain Historical & Cultural Centre, Coleraine’s Ulster Scots hub. Located on the upper two floors of Coleraine Orange Hall, it houses a permanent exhibition and an Ulster Scots reference library.

There’s also an opportunity to visit Glór Leim a Mhadaidh, a group dedicated to the development of Irish culture and language throughout the Roe Valley area, where you can hear about the diverse range of activities and cultural events held at their base in Limavady.

Or you can find out more about Corrymeela Peace and Reconciliation Centre outside Ballycastle. Founded in 1965 by Ray Davey, a former chaplain in World War II, Corrymeela works to help groups embrace difference and learn how to have difficult conversations.

In the final virtual video, we visit The Ullans Centre in Ballymoney which works to promote and encourage the everyday use of the Ulster Scots language.

‘Through the Looking Glass’ aims to build greater understanding of our different perspectives and offers a chance to explore the range of different cultures and traditions that make up the rich diversity of life in Northern Ireland.
