WATCH: Video shows how Foyle Bridge in Derry and riverside will be transformed by £25m project aimed at addressing mental health issues in Derry
22 Oct 2018
An ambitious project aimed at transforming the Foyle Bridge in Derry and the riverside area will be launched in the city this morning. The Our Future Foyle project, which involved two years of wide participation involving more than 5,000 participants is now hoping to secure £25m in funding to roll out the project. That will include the Foyle Reeds, an art installation and digital health intervention set to transform the Foyle Bridge into an illuminated sculpture of more than 12,000 individual reeds, and an effective suicide barrier. The project would also see the creation of the Foyle Bubbles project, a series of 40 riverside pods designed to stimulate enterprise and job creation. The project represents a partnership by the Public Health Agency and the Royal College of Art’s Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design. See today's Derry News for more on this story.
