A part of Void Derry’s response to this year’s Festival.
“Void is delighted to be hosting a week of events for NIMHAF week for the first time! We have lots of online and onsite activities to offer so do check in on www.derryvoid.com as events will be updated and tickets released over the next few weeks. With these activities, we are encouraging you to gather and create - at home through digital workshops and onsite at Void. Some of the activities like our nature weaving workshop and mark making workshop have been designed to get you out and about to collect materials before undertaking it.”
“We would love to hear from any community groups who would like to undertake a workshop in the gallery so please do reach out to Maeve on email@example.com who would be happy to help!”
