A community engagement programme linked to the Troubles Art exhibition will take place in Derry~Londonderry from January and we want you to be involved.
The Troubles Art exhibition will launch at Nerve Visual on Ebrington on 19 January 2019, featuring the work of artists such as John Keane, Locky Morris, Jack Pakenham and Rita Duffy.
Participants will have the opportunity to take part in a six week engagement programme linked to the exhibition with sessions that include talks from featured artists, film screenings, creative writing workshops and the opportunity to make your own textile art.
Donal McAnallen, Community Engagement Officer at National Museums NI, said: “Art has often provided the most profound and critical responses to conflict.
“With this in mind we are now recruiting local participants for a free community-engagement programme to lead up to the launch of Troubles Art.
“It’s an opportunity to meet new people and take part in creative activities sensitively exploring themes of conflict and violence, suffering and loss, and the meaning and power of symbols.
“We welcome participants from all backgrounds whether they have previous experience in art projects or not.”
The programme is free to attend, begins on 23 January 2018 and is open to all.
