Ulster University Sociology Senior Lecturer gives Mural Project his support

Following the live link on radio Ulster’s Arts Extra programme with the Liverpool Mural Project (TLMP), Northern Ireland Artists and Professor Bill Rolston (Ulster University Senior Lecturer in Sociology), Bill has contacted the Liverpool Mural Project today offering his whole hearted support for our project.

Professor Rolston reiterated his strong belief that by bringing together such talented artists from the two main communities in Belfast to work together with local Liverpool residents and community organisations is truly a historical event.

"I hope this project gets the funding it deserves, it's one of the best ideas I've heard in a long, long time".

As well as his vocal support Professor Rolston has confirmed that he is willing to come to Liverpool and give a lecture in order to highlight the positive effect mural art can provide to local areas in decline or in the process of regeneration by creating community ownership.

We at TLMP feel that this is a great offer from Professor Rolston and would add to the project and is truly praise indeed from such a well respected lecturer in Northern Ireland, and widely regarded as an expert on community wall murals around the world.
