Imagine The Street – Art Installation

Left Ear has been working with a number of young people prior to Good Relations Week to develop artworks and posters to be installed across shared spaces within Derry City. These pieces of artwork will reflect on a sense of community belonging and rejuvenating shared spaces.

Virtual Tour of St. Augustine’s Church

The present building dates from 1872 and is in the design of 13th Century gothic style.
