CCGHT has been fortunate to receive part funding from NITB and the ÉCONOMUSÉE project to commission a short film showcasing two local artisans within the ÉCONOMUSÉE network in Northern Ireland, Broighter Gold ÉCONOMUSÉE in Limavady and Scullion Hurls ÉCONOMUSÉE in Loughguile.
ÉCONOMUSÉE is a concept that was developed in Quebec, Canada. The term ÉCONOMUSÉE translates to working museum. The mission of the ÉCONOMUSÉE network is to promote and keep alive traditional crafts and knowledge, whilst ensuring economic growth within rural communities. The project consists of partners in eight countries; Quebec, Greenland. Iceland, Faroe Islands, Norway, Sweden, Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The launch of Scullion Hurls ÉCONOMUSÉE is due to take place within the next few months- we will keep you updated through our CCGHT website and social media pages. View the film and let us know what you think on our Facebook page. Your feedback is very much appreciated!
