Pyrography Workshop
Saturday 7th November, 1-3pm. 

Artist Karen Cassidy has been working with fire for 15 years and will share some fun techniques for burning onto wood in this workshop. Participants will discover ways of writing or creating line drawings with a wood burning pen. If that isn't enough pyromania for you, we will also experiment with stenciling onto wood using a blow torch!

Age 8+ with accompanying adult. 

The Eye Of The Beholder
Friday 13th November 7.30pm

Forty years on from the Fall of Saigon and the end of the Vietnam War, do conscientious citizens and decision makers have the power to effect change? How do artists create a commentary and historical archive during times of conflict and war?

These are some of the questions that will form the back drop to the panel discussion “The Eye of the Beholder” chaired by curator/artist Orla Ryan who will be joined by Anna Lo and Siún Hanrahan

The opening event of the 2015 WOW festival, this panel discussion will reflect on contemporary art practise against a backdrop of humanitarian crisis, drawing parallels between the current refugee crisis and that of Vietnam in the 1970’s. 

Admission is free to both events but please pre-book with sally@derryvoid.com
