Divided communities
Radoslaw Polkowski

Painting elements of urban infrastructure is a way in which rival communities in Northern Ireland symbolically divide public spaces: Irish tricolour marks the republican, British tricolour the loyalist areas in Derry/Londonderry, the city whose name is also a contested issue. How does this unique context impact on lives of newcomers to these old-established communities: e.g migrant workers? In answering this question, my study critically engages with our established notions of community.
