Using a combination of the internet, workshops and performance, this project will share the worldwide story of the people of Derry.
A team of professional artists will work with local creative groups linking them with the diaspora of Derry to spell out what it is to come from Derry and why its people, at home and abroad, are proud of their city.
With contributions from around the world, a dedicated website will help to show how the city has shaped people’s lives and has stayed with them throughout their travels. This will serve as a valuable legacy for the city, and will also help to structure the public performance. A ‘community chorus’ of children, young people and adults, who will perform dance, music and theatre alongside professional artists in the final showpiece. With the performance being webcast, it can be enjoyed by the Derry diaspora spread across the globe.
