About this Event

This powerful and topical exhibition tells the story of the Troubles through the twelve large-scale murals of The People’s Gallery in Derry/Londonderry, Northern Ireland.

The evening will include contributions from the Bogside Artists, Dr. Rachel Kerr, Dr. Craig Larkin, (Department of War Studies), Prof. Ben Quash, Dr. Vittorio Montemaggi, Dr. Adrienne Dengerink Chaplin (Department of Theology and Religious Studies)

Created and curated by King's College Visiting Research Fellow Dr. Adrienne Dengerink Chaplin in close co-operation with the Bogside Artists, the exhibition draws attention to the non-sectarian Civil Rights movement in the late 1960’s and raises awareness of the lasting effects of The Troubles on the day-to-day lives of ordinary people.
