About the Event
This event will be led by Ulster University's Transitional Justice Institute with local artist David Turner and architect Michael Wilkinson and will involve reimagining the peace walls as spaces for sharing and for learning about all sides of the community. David and Michael will explain their approach to design and demonstrate the creative process, and will then provide opportunities for the different groups of the public to work on their own designs.
We have chosen this topic because the question of how we move beyond our divided past remains a pressing one in Northern Ireland.
We aim to encourage a debate on how we as a society conceive of peace walls 18 years after the Good Friday Agreement. Rather than focusing on separation and security the idea is to shift the debate creatively.
