Join Mark Lusby, Friends of the Derry Walls for a walk exploring the route of the Mary Blue Barn which once flowed along the western flank of the Island of Derry.
The route is mainly urban and is approx. 1.5 miles so please wear appropriate footwear. There will be recording equipment available to allow you to record the sounds along our walk.
To book tickets, please do so via Eventbrite.
We will meet at Void Gallery – 10 Waterloo Place – in Derry to begin the walk.
This forms part of Showtime, David Beattie’s sculptural commission which forms part of Void Offsites. Slowtime addresses place, the environment, and our relationship to time through the rhythm of the tides. Beattie places community participation at the heart of the project; inviting the local community to consider the ebb and flow of the river, encouraging participants to rethink their relationship with the river and their natural environment, prompting introspection and an examination of personal and collective histories.
