Our Future Foyle
How can we design and deliver real-life impact interventions to help promote well-being and regeneration along the River Foyle, Derry/LondonDerry?
Our Future Foyle is a socially transformative project on an urban scale based along Derry’s six-mile waterfront.
Driven by the need to address concerns over the mental health and well-being of the city’s community, the project began in 2016 as a research commission funded by Public Health Agency, Northern Ireland (PHA), to investigate ways of improving the mental well-being of the population along the banks and bridges of the River Foyle.
Since then the project has grown to a significant scale, and in drawing the support of an estimated £15 million in funding capital, has expanded its commitment to improving the mental well-being of the city with a broader scope. It is anticipated that the project will achieve significant economic and health benefits for the region through the delivery of high-profile and distinctive design interventions.
