CultureCraft - REclaim|REpurpose

About this project

In 2014 I curated and project managed REclaim|REpurpose -  a residency in Derry by renowned American craft designer Boris Bally who specialises in re-purposing road and street signs, creating items of furniture and interior decoration. He worked with local groups over three weeks to create a series of street furniture which have been installed in the city as part of the urban bike trail. I also curated an exhibition of international artists whose work embraces re-purpose.
