Our Future Foyle

“Our Future Foyle” is a transformative, innovative cultural and health intervention focused on the River Foyle in Derry/Londonderry. The project has been developed over the past two years through extensive community and stakeholder engagement. It aims to improve the health and social well-being of everyone using the riverfront of the River Foyle, through rejuvenation and animation of the banks and bridges as a shared positive space.

The project is delivered in partnership with City Centre Initiative and a series of strategic partners from regional and local government.

Incorporating three distinct interventions, the project has gained considerable support from both local and central government, key strategic and community stakeholders including the strategic growth partnership, government departments and key agencies. The project is now ready to move from design and feasibility to planning and delivery of its three key interventions: Foyle Reeds, Foyle Bubbles and Foyle Experience. An estimated £20-25m capital investment is anticipated across the three elements, to achieve significant economic, tourism and health benefits for the city and wider North West region. - Our Future Foyle

Vizrage has been involved from the very beginning, creating concept imagery, visualisations for media/print, and animations illustrating the vision of the Reeds and Bubbles on the Derry riverfront. It has been an ongoing collaborative effort with the team based out in Derry with more projects on the horizon!

Below are a few articles published recently outlining the scheme:
