Derby Cathedral to Welcome The Derby Wall Community Art Project

The Derby Wall is a community art project created in response to COVID-19 and is made up of over 1,000 canvases painted by Derby and Derbyshire residents, expressing their thoughts, emotions and experiences, creating a snapshot of what life was like during the pandemic.

The project has been led by Derby based artist Maggie Roper-Attenborrow and will be available to view inside Derby Cathedral from Tuesday 10th January until Sunday 29th January.

Maggie gained a B.A. Hons degree from the University of Derby in 1995, is an Associate Member of Banks Mill Studios and a member at the Museum of Making. Until recently was Founder and CEO of Steps for the Future Performing Arts, for adults with differences.

In October 2022 Maggie ran two of her workshops at the Cathedral and Derby residents were invited to come along and create their own canvas to be added to the exhibition.

The Derby Wall is made possible through funding from Community Action Derby and the National Heritage Lottery Fund, supported by Derby Museums and Derby Cathedral.

Please see Cathedral opening times for viewing opportunities.
