This year CCA Derry~Londonderry launches a new edition during Foyle Pride week 2021.
CCA Research Associate Frances Whorrall-Campbell has designed a pink pencil engraved in silver lettering with the phrase 'WHY WERE WE ECSTATIC'. Created by Frances, the phrase intends to draw connections to both Pride and to the AIDS crisis. The colour was chosen by them for its historic connotations and the absence of punctuation is deliberate to create an open interpretation.
The edition of 45 pencils are available to purchase through our online shop. Use this option to order your limited edition to collect from CCA.
The launch of this edition, coincides with the announcement of Frances' writing workshop 'How to write a door and walk through', taking place this Autumn 2021. This three-part writing workshop, devised and delivered by Frances, is specifically designed for LGBTQIA+ writers and artists. You can read more about the workshop and book your ticket here.
The proceeds of the sales of the pencil edition will be used to subsidise a funded place for a person from the local LGBTQIA+ Community, based in or from Derry City and Strabane District. If you feel that you would benefit from this opportunity please email email@example.com to register your interest.
