WORKING WITH THE ARTISTS


Universities may wish to consider developing meaningful learning opportunities with The Bogside Artists in Northern Ireland. In the past, students have held internships in the studio and college classes have worked with community outreach projects in Derry.

Recently, students from the University Honors Program at Georgia Southern University spent a week with The Bogside Artists during on an Honors Alternative Break trip to Northern Ireland. Students worked alongside artists Tom Kelly and Kevin Hasson on a project designed to intertwine art and reconciliation. The project involved the creation of a series of colorful panels featuring images designed by area youth. These panels will brighten the exterior of a community center in Limavady, where Protestant and Catholic children can come together to engage in dialogue and activities that foster mutual understanding.

“Working on the Limavady panels made me realize what an asset The Bogside Artists are to Northern Ireland. Art is a way in which these children can come together and learn to set aside their differences. We were fortunate to be a part of this experience."
- Ashlin Reid, Georgia Southern University student
