On 8 April 2015 Contemporary Christianity held a series of events with Dr Adrienne Chaplin, a philosopher of art, and Tom Kelly, Kevin Hasson and William Kelly, often known as the Bogside artists.

This was a unique opportunity to learn about the story of faith and hope behind the city’s well-known – but often little understood – Bogside murals.

Below is a video of the lunchtime event and a recording of the evening event.
