Call for artists: Artists’ Development Programme at Void, Derry

As part of the Virtually There touring programme at Void, Derry, showcasing children’s artwork made in collaboration with artists, we are excited to announce a new development programme throughout February with Artist Ann Donnelly. Ann has been working on the Virtually There project for the past six years. Over a series of days, artists will have an opportunity to connect with Ann and develop their own practice working with children and young people.

There will be 4 sessions taking place on Tuesdays / Thursdays from 4-6pm. Places are free, but they are limited so contact [email protected] to find out more.

The Virtually There exhibition showcases work from the Virtually There project, the only long-term arts project running in Northern Irish schools. Demonstrating the use of virtual technology to connect studio and classroom, the exhibition features work created by children in collaboration with artists Ann Donnelly, Julie Forrester, Ann Henderson, Sharon Kelly and Andrew Livingstone. 

The Virtually There exhibition and event tour (2014–15) is funded by the Arts Council’s Touring and Dissemination of Work Award – in partnership with the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
