The revival of this exhibition details the life and legacy of John Hewitt, the Ulster poet, author, lecturer, broadcaster and journalist. His body of work engages with the complex relationship between Ulster people and their country, landscape and fellow citizens. A leading figure of Ulster's cultural life, Hewitt was 'father-figure' to the new generation of Northern Irish poets, which included the likes of Seamus Heaney, Derek Mahon and Michael Longley, among others.

The Chairman of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council will officially launch the exhibition.

Supported by Ulster University.
