Our next monthly meeting will take place on Wednesday 5th April at 7:00 pm in the Observatory Library.
Our speaker this month is Rosie Hickey from the Strand Cinema Project .
She will be talking about local cinemas and her cinema project, which is now being extended across Northern Ireland.
Rosie has worked as Heritage Officer of the Strand Arts Centre since 2020. She manages the ‘Strand Stories’ project (Strand Stories (strandstoriesbelfast.com)) which is funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund. In this role she combines two of her interests: exploring the nooks and crannies of historic buildings and collecting memories of Belfast’s past.
Rosie graduated with an MA (Hons) in Architectural History from the University of Edinburgh in 2010 and received a PhD in Architecture from Queen’s University Belfast in 2017. And since 2020 she has been a member of the Historic Buildings Council.
