The ‘Gie’s Peace’ project is an Anti-Sectarian initiative which operates in communities throughout Inverclyde. Inverclyde Community Development Trust, Trust Volunteering, is funded by the Scottish Government’s Community Safety Unit to take a community led approach to exploring the issue in Inverclyde. We plan to conduct and record oral history research interviews structured around respondents’ experiences of living in Inverclyde. Testimonies will be used to creatively explore the issues surrounding sectarianism and may contribute to creative outputs such as: the oral history archive, which will be deposited in a local museum or library; a public exhibition held in the local community; as a stimulus or direct contribution to creative development in the form of drama, music, graphic novel, visual art, film and creative writing.
