Everyday Stories Launch – Evening Event
7 November 2017 @ 18:30 - 20:00Free
Everyday Stories will be on display in Filmbase from Nov 6 – 9, 2017. Come join us for a glass of wine at our launch event at 6:30pm on Tuesday, Nov 7.
The exhibition comprises of stories from eight Irish women impacted by the 8th Amendment, illustrated by Irish artists.
The website www.EverydayStories.org will launch in tandem.
Actresses Karen Kelly and Fiona O’ Connor will read a selection of stories at 7pm.
Ireland is a nation of story tellers, from Seanchaí to “C’mere till I tell ya.” Every day the impacts of the 8th Amendment are experienced in the most personal and intimate ways imaginable. Through this project we reveal the humanity of complex lives, considered decisions and difficult journeys. We hope these stories bring perspective, compassion and understanding to often divisive and difficult public debates and will help us find common ground.
