About the Programme

Delivered by the Linen Hall Library, this programme set out to create a community produced colouring book of stories from across the region through its landmarks, events, people and lifestyles.

Following workshops from journalist and writer Malachi O’Doherty, photographer Christopher Barr and broadcaster and comedian Tim McGarry, a group of participants were tasked to submit photographs of places and things that hold a significance to them or to their past.

Submitted images were then transformed into line drawings to create this unique publication.
