"If stones could speak,
Then London's praise
Should sound for those w
ho built this church
and city from the ground"

The above quote is taken from the foundation stone in the entrance porch at St. Columb's Cathedral in Derry. They were written in 1633 on the completion of the cathedral. If Stones Could Speak is the title of a project currently being run by Greater Shantallow Community Arts and is funded by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. The project is designed to provide a creative platform for digital art writers and artists in the Derry area. The aim is to create new work in the form of an anthology of short comic book stories that will use the city of Derry (especially the walled city) as a backdrop. The idea is to "work local and think global". The final artwork will be published and will act as a legacy and enhance the CVs of all those involved.

Greater Shantallow Community Arts
Founded in 1999, GSCA is a community arts organisation based in the Outer North area of Derry in Northern ireland that aims to provide direct access to the arts within communities. It aims to enrich lives, promote artists, the arts and to promote cultural activity. www.gscaderry.com
