Keep Ebrington Alive.
Sunday 5th January at 2pm
Our small city became huge in 2013 - let’s not belittle ourselves in 2014.
We built something beautiful during city of culture – let’s not rip the heart out of the spirit of 2013.
The building of the gallery space in Ebrington (at a cost of 2.5 million) created a confluence of community. Without it, our fear is that Ebrington will become a lifeless space.
Contemporary Art would thrive on this site. To maintain the excellence achieved in 2013 it needs the sustenance of the Ebrington gallery space.
Void knows from the leading role we have played in visual arts provision in 2013 how crucial this space has been in raising the profile of contemporary art in Derry. More importantly, the creation of this space gave us access to art of the highest caliber – something that should be seen not as a privilege for a year, but a basic human right. Art gives us a context in which to see ourselves as part of a wider and richer world.
This is no time to lower our horizons.
Join us Sunday 5 January at 2.00pm at 80/81, Ebrington to show your support for keeping the gallery space.
