Irish Travellers

Heather Buckley

1 October–4 November

Mon–Sun 08:00–17:30

An immersive experience, Heather shares her traveller encounters using large graphics, sound and salt prints.

Heather has been interviewing and photographing the traveller community in Southern Ireland for the last two years.

Fascinated by their unique culture, she aims to portray an alternative view point, focusing on our similarities rather than our differences.

Stories and narratives are woven into the exhibition bringing life to the characters portrayed.

  • Support us

    BPF consistently demonstrates exceptional value for money. Led by volunteers, BPF endeavours to make all its activities self-financing. Public funding makes up only a third of the current BPF budget and pays for freelance consultants essential to delivering our intensive programmes. Help us continue to develop our much-needed programmes by donating here. Every little helps.
