Collection: Cork 2005 Project

Collection DescriptionThe Cork 2005 Project was carried out and funded as part of Cork’s tenure as European Capital of Culture in 2005. Building on the theme ‘City of Culture’, the project explored the questions: ‘What is the everyday culture of Cork City?’ and ‘Who are the people of the city?’, and aimed to broaden our archival holdings to reflect the increased numbers of migrants making their home in the city. 37 ethnographic interviews were carried out with Cork residents, more than two-thirds of whom had come to Cork from elsewhere, exploring their relationship with the cultural and social landscape of the city. The interviews include accounts of family life and growing up in Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, China, England, Germany, India, Iraq, Israel, Kurdistan, the Netherlands, Nigeria, Poland, Slovakia, South Africa Ukraine, and the United States.

CommentThe information listed from this repository has been extracted from lists available in the archives. The lists were compiled by staff of the Northside Folklore Project and we are grateful for their assistance. It must be remembered that due to time constraints not all items in this repository were examined individually. At the time the Original Directory was compiled, The Northside Folklore Project contained: (1) 300 sound recordings; (2) 4000 photographs; (3) 35 video tapes. Some of the entries in the database offer examples of the material the archive holds, other entries provide details of collections added since 2000.
