The future is determined by those who get involved.

Talk of the Town

Our Talk of the Town project, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, will explore the future of Carrickfergus with the people who live here.

We have opened a Talking Shop in The Courtyard in Scotch Quarter where we plan to hold conversations with small groups of people exploring what makes a good life in Carrickfergus. We will use maps, photographs and stories to build up a shared picture of life in Carrickfergus as a foundation from which we can imagine our future together. We’ll use tools such as the International Futures Forum’s Three Horizons Framework to create a collective vision of the future. We’ll also use approaches, such as backcasting, to start planning how to create that future together.
