The Showcase Events

The project team launched the www.borderroadmemories.com interactive map and website during the months of October and November 2014. The team showcased the interviews recorded by local border residents, along with photos taken at the time of the road closures and newspaper articles that covered the events. Six interactive booths were provided for attendees to view interviews and explore the website.

Over 300 people attended the showcase events, which were held in venues across the border region, listed below.
