    Very interesting shot! Can you tell me more about it?

    • The centre itself provides a space for writers and artists to work, and to display and sell/promote their work. This photo depicts part of a collection of over 200 glass tubes by artist Killian Schurmann. Each contains a short manuscript (most are hand-written) from Irish writers. The manuscripts were gifted to the Verbal Arts Centre for inclusion in this work. The full collection is round and in several layers so it has the effect of being like a multi-layered chandelier. It is particularly symbolic in Derry~Londonderry, a city deeply affected by the Northern Ireland conflict. The arts have proved to be an effective way of bringing people from across the community together to record and move on from a dark and troubled past.
