14th July 2021
7pm- 8.30pm, meeting at Void Galley, 10 Waterloo Place, BT48 6BU

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.

Please book your place here via Eventbrite.


This event forms part of Slowtime. David Beattie’s sculptural commission 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.
