CCA Derry~Londonderry is pleased to be part of DCSDC's Inside Out Initiative with artist Kiera O'Toole. On Saturday 3 July 2021, artist Kiera O'Toole will be creating a new public site-responsive abstract drawing in Derry~Londonderry. The following day on Sunday 4 July 2021 you are invited to interactively draw with Kiera's drawings or to make your own through a series of free public workshops at both the drawing and different sites across Derry~Londonderry and Strabane.

Kiera is an independent visual artist and doctoral researcher at Loughborough University. She considers herself to be a 'patheur' - someone who follows their intuitive impulses and makes drawings that must be felt rather than cognitively understood. Combining fieldwork, material and philosophical research, Kiera creates ephemeral site-specific drawings in public spaces. She's interested in drawing's capacity to reveal the non-representational aspects of our world through recording the 'emotional vibrations' of a place. In this way, the pace becomes a co-creator of the drawing.

Further details about the event including times and locations of the public drawing workshops will be released soon. Chalk will be provided for all participants and safety measures will be in place to ensure a Covid-safe event. Please bring your own face covering.
