Sanctuary

Nerve Centre Cinema | 7.30pm–8.30pm | Free

Sanctuary follows a group of young Creggan men as they travel to England to work with acclaimed artist, David Best

Artichoke brought artist David Best to Derry to work with local residents on a radical arts project, Temple, that turned the tradition of bonfire burning on its head: a shared 72 ft-high temple, which was set alight and ceremonially burnt. In May 2022, Féile took 6 young men from Creggan/Brandywell and two youth leaders from St Mary’s Youth Club to help build Sanctuary with David Best and his crew, an unforgettable temporary structure and space of healing, built by the local community to commemorate the loss during the Covid 19 pandemic. Féile’s videographer, Ruairi Campbell documented the visit and has created a beautiful film that captures this life changing experience.

A new documentary following the production of 'A Green Hill Far Away' a play celebrating Creggan's 75th anniversary.
