Re-Imaging Tyndale (2010)

The Greater Ballysillan Community Residents Association and the residents in Tynedale worked with Groundwork NI to re-image and improve the area through the removal of a paramilitary mural and other visible signs of sectarianism throughout the estate. After consultation with community groups in the area a type of artwork and a priority site has been identified in Tynedale Drive where a mural which pictorially outlines the social and economic history of the area and local community.

Artist Daniela Balmaverde worked closely with young people from the Ballysillian Primary School to finalise the design. Based on the theme of reflection, the new mural provides a mystical interpretation of some of the historic aspects of the area.
