Call for Participation | Make a Hyacinth, Bucket Challenge Sculpture with Alan Phelan

This Monday Plinth Commission recipient Alan Phelan will be at Void Gallery, Derry, to hand out materials for his crowd-sourced project which will be launched on the Derry Walls in September 2020. He would like YOU to get involved by making your own flower sculpture at home using papier-mache. It will then be assembled on site. You can collect your materials from artist Alan Phelan himself this Monday and he will be able to answer any questions that you may have. If you cannot attend on Monday please let us know and we can arrange for collection throughout the week. Flowers are to be submitted by 10th August.

For more details please see this link, email Maeve Butler at, or phone 028 7130 8080. You can also watch this how-to video by Alan here.
