Picture for blog story Crows On The Wire: the app

Crows on the Wire is the title of a Verbal Arts Centre project which explores the transition of the RUC (Royal Ulster Constabulary) to the PSNI (Police Service of Northern Ireland) from the perspective of the impacts upon the individual. 

In 2013 the performance Crows on the Wire toured Northern Ireland and delivered a community and schools engagement programme. In 2014, an innovative educational app has been created for young people based on the original script by writer Jonathan Burgess.

The Crows on the Wire app will be available for teachers from the end of August 2014. Contact Project Co-ordinator marie.corey@theverbal.co at the Verbal Arts Centre, Stable Lane and Mall Wall, Bishop Street Within, Derry - Londonderry BT48 6PU. (0044)28 7126 6946
