Troubles Art participants turn their voices into art

A seven week engagement programme linked to Troubles Art concluded in March as participants used cutting edge digital technology to create their own personal artworks linked to the Troubles. 

The programme allowed participants to explore the Troubles through the new exhibition at Nerve Visual and by visiting the Ulster Museum, Museum of Free Derry and the Siege Museum. 

Film screenings, group discussions and creative writing workshops further enabled the group to formulate their own responses and feedback to the content. 

The programme concluded with two workshops in the Nerve Centre's Fab Lab where, taking inspiration from the artist Locky Morris, the group recorded words and phrases that represented the Troubles to them, before using laser cutting technology to turn their words and sound waves into unique pieces of art.
