Congratulations to Mary Kerrigan and her colleagues at the Walled City Partnership on yesterday's launch of The Seeing Project, their new learning resource for primary-level school children. The project was launched by the Mayor of Derry Martin Reilly alongside Mary McLaughlin, Chair of the Walled City Partnership and Shona McCarthy, Chief Executive of the Culture Company and Cliodhna Mulhern

The project encourages young children to "voice their feelings, opinions and dreams for themselves and their place". It's based on appreciative inquiry, the "purposeful search for the best in people, in situations and in places". Its initial resources have been developed around the city of Derry, but Mary Kerrigan noted at the launch that the lesson plans can be applied for learning anywhere across the world.
