Irish and UK graffiti, parkour, DJing, Slacklining and Skateboarding artists come to St Columb’s Park

Posted on: 12th September 2017

The Playhouse and UV Arts has developed a new artistic response to anti-social behaviour in St Columb's Park.
Irish and UK in graffiti, parkour, DJing, Slacklining and Skateboarding artists will visit the park for a free day of demos next Saturday.
Park Art aims to encourage 13-16 year olds to get in touch with their creative side with local and national artists.
The project is a result of a park focused steering group created by St Columb's Park House, which includes police, street wardens, park manager, residents, community workers, and The Playhouse.
The free demo day will take place next Saturday 16 September from 2-7pm at St Columb's Park running track. Artists involved include UV Arts, Liverpool graffiti artist Betarok75, Painter/Illustrator and Designer Elph, parkour company JumpNI, and DJing, Music Production company Movin Music Academy.
"We want to create a space that enthuses and inspires young people in Derry. Londonderry who feel there's a lack of activities in the city for them" Playhouse project co-ordinator Elaine Forde said. "Young people feel they have nothing to do and would love a creative outlet, we can't wait to see what they create!"
Park Art is a Playhouse project funded by Hope For Youth, Youth Justice Agency, BBC Children in Need and the Department for Justice.
The free Park Art demo and workshop day will take place next Saturday 16 September from 2-7pm at St Columb's Park running track. Booking is essential- contact Elaine on elaine@derryplayhouse.co.uk or (028)71268027.
