Awakening the Windows – Art competition sponsored by Bishop’s Gate Hotel – deadline 1 Nov

Void Gallery, North West Carnival Initiative and Derry City and Strabane District Council are delighted to announce Awakening the Windows. While we might not be able to get out on the streets, we can animate the city using our front windows to create unique and imaginative displays that celebrate Halloween in Derry, creating an art parade for people to enjoy.

Void, in collaboration with North West Carnival Initiative and Derry City and Strabane District Council, have programmed a series of art making workshops that will run every day from Monday 19th until Friday 23rd of October that will enable you to weave your own visual story of the Awakening in the comfort of your own home!

There is also delight that Bishop’s Gate Hotel have generously sponsored a prize for the winning window – an overnight stay in their hotel for two guests with dinner included! Nestled within the City Walls, Bishop’s Gate Hotel blends stunning Edwardian architecture, stylish appointments and luxurious facilities which have been sensitively restored to pay homage to the rich heritage of the building.

In order to be entered in the competition, all you need to do is upload an image of your window to the The winner will be announced on the 11th of November.

All videos will be released on the Derry Halloween website at 2pm daily throughout next week – the 19th – 23rd October – and stay tuned to Void’s social media for updates.
