In 2009 the idea was born to produce a village produce together with the "Forever Young Pensioners" group. Presentations and workshops were held to collect ideas for a new object. What should it refer to? What to represent? In the Northern Irish context where social and political boarderlines have been very cleary marked over the decades, most symbols and signs have strong associations with either or. The act of placing a caravan that is decorated with cute and cosy images on the middle of the football pitch, and to simply use it, was a significant moment in changing the dynamics and territories in Ballykinlar. Call it "agressive cosyness", as Christoph Schäfer in his essay here.
