Only In The Movies

03072 2015-10-01 Lower Shankill Angels+
Young people from the Lower Shankill pose in the style of a movie poster: “You must have dreams and goals if you are ever going to achieve anything in this world.” The info panel (shown below) incorrectly states that the board replaces a loyalist H-Block mural (of which there were two versions: yellow (M02473) | orange) and, before that, a UDU-UFF-UDA mural; these were on different walls and this board replaces only the Maze mural.
This is the second of five recently-launched murals in the lower Shankill. The first to be featured was I Am Not Resilient.

    First of all, Thank you for putting our new murals on your site. I’d just like to add that the murals featured on the information panels are a record of what used to be on that wall AND nearby walls, as we wanted a record of our past as well as our future. Several of the murals were removed as part of projects managed by the Housing Executive, plus redevelopment within the estate. Several old style murals are recorded beside newer community artworks, again as a record of what used to be in the area. This is a practice we have employed on several of our ReImaging projects, as we use art as a catalyst for change. We asked the artist to put these murals on the panels to remind us of what was there. Thank you Shankill Resident.
