Helen Cammock – The Long Note introduction

The Long Note is a solo exhibition by artist Helen Cammock celebrating the involvement of women in the civil rights movement in Derry in 1968 and coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the first march in Derry on October 5th. Cammock has created a new film work that explores the history and role of women in the Civil Rights Movement in the city. The complexities of the politics in Northern Ireland have overshadowed the social history of the region and women’s history more specifically. The Long Note (2018) is a partial move towards redressing this disparity and to recognise the need to expand the narrative and highlight the centrality of women in what was a pivotal moment in Derry and Ireland’s history.
