The Rise and Fall of Public Art is an exciting new programme that will explore how Northern Ireland has used public art to address our history of conflict.
Learn about commissioning a piece of art, the great surge of public art that was commissioned after the Good Friday Agreement, and take part in designing your own piece of art reflecting on the past, present and future.
How will the programme work?
-- Artist and facilitator Lesley Cherry will discuss the good, the bad and the ugly in terms of public art in Northern Ireland
-- Conceptual artist Deirdre Robb will talk about how art is commissioned and present approaches to public art, re-imaging and artist in residence programmes
-- Take part in a creative workshop to learn how to create your own artistic response and submit your ideas
-- You will join an online community hosted in Slack to share ideas and spark conversation
