The workshop will include a brief insight into the artist's research and practice, an urban walk in Derry~Londonderry to collect sensory data, followed by an activity in the gallery. We all experience and perceive our external environments in a multi-sensory way and the workshop will explore space and place through embodied, hyper-sensual experience, activated through an urban walk including various sensory activities. The workshop will be a way to experience the city in a curious manner with the option to create something at the end.

This is a free workshop, with a limited number of places. Booking is essential and can be booked through our online shop*. This workshop is suitable for ages 16+.
