About For Your Freedom & Ours C.I.C.

We are a social enterprise that designs and provides shared history programmes using creative forms of education and story telling.



By gathering historical information about the links between Northern Ireland and Poland and discovering connections to World War II of Polish people currently living in Northern Ireland we are bringing shared history to life and create a visual interpretation by using a number of tools, including exhibitions, publications, online gallery, and lectures. We engage and promote our resources with people by coordinated social media campaigns.


We are constantly looking for new ideas and learning experiences that bring shared history to life in a creative and an engaging way. Our interactive bespoke and accredited educational programmes combine historical events with a modern learning approach to foster a wider understanding of shared history and to celebrate positive relations between communities.

Nothing beats standing on the spot where history happened. We provide historical tours to Poland following the most iconic locations in history such as Westerplatte and the World War II Museum in Gdansk, the Warsaw Uprising Museum and the Auschwitz Museum. We also provide educational trips to Scotland and England following the footsteps of the Polish freedom fighters of the Polish Armed Forces and the Polish Air Forces.
