Cultúrlann McAdam Ó Fiaich, Falls Road
25th – 30th March: 9.00am – 5.00pm
The Pat Finucane Centre.
The Pat Finucane Centre (PFC) has been working in partnership with the Museum of British Colonialism (MofBC) – an online archive created to look at the impact of colonialism. The Museum of British Colonialism has been researching the impact of British military repression in Kenya against the Mau Mau guerilla movement.
Brigadier Frank Kitson, who arrived in Belfast in the early 1970s, first developed his counter-insurgency strategies against the Mau Mau in Kenya. The PFC has also been researching the linkages between military policies used in Northern Ireland in the early 1970s and military policies in Cyprus, Kenya, Malaya, Aden and elsewhere.
Both the PFC and MofBC will have legacy of colonialism exhibitions running from Monday through Saturday at An Cultúrlann during opening hours over the festival week. There will be a panel discussion on Saturday 30th.
