This event is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science Northern Ireland

Led by Ulster University's Transitional Justice Institute with local artist David Turner and architect Michael Wilkinson, we will reimagine the peace walls as spaces for sharing and for learning about all sides of the community.

David and Michael will explain their approach to design and demonstrate the creative process, and will then invite guests to attend the Ulster University's Art College on 8 and 10 November to come in and work on their own designs.

Background:

Artist David Turner and architect Michael Wilkinson have been working for 18 months on a cross-disciplinary, multi faceted project, 'The Theoretical Re-development of Belfast'. While both are firmly grounded in their artistic and architectural practice respectively, they are both conceptually driven. Their work progresses through a mutual understanding that no constraints be placed on ideas. This allows for any and all possibilities and outcomes to be evaluated. No ideas are bad ideas.
Between artist and architect, the project is envisaged as a multi faceted Urban Regeneration project. It seeks to Reimagine the City of Belfast and use this as a catalyst to promote good design throughout the Provence of Ulster. The work is largely artistic in conception and explores many avenues. It is a beginning and a process rather than a conclusion.
