Sailortown Regeneration is a people-led redevelopment organisation based in the Belfast Docks. In this case study Dr Ellie Pridgeon explains how Sailtortown successfully delivered a remote and popular St Patrick’s Day Live event in March 2021, despite Covid-19. The event was streamed around the world and provided Sailortown with the opportunity to develop its inhouse digital communication capacity. Sailortown have been mentored by Ellie as part of The Lab strand of the Digital Heritage Lab.
