The Legacy Project: National Women’s Council of Ireland Commissions 2013
The National Women’s Council of Ireland initiated The Legacy Project to challenge mainstream representations of women and work and to look instead at the alternatives. The commissions will involve the unpacking of historical and contemporary ideas about work, society, and economy as well as advocacy and legacy building. These commissions aim to create another kind of public dialogue that will amplify the advocacy work of the NWCI, the membership, interested communities and individuals. They are about the contribution artists make to our knowledge of the world.
The Legacy Project will be officially launched at the one-day conference One Struggle: Women Workers 1913 – 2013. March 12th, Connolly Theatre, Liberty Hall, Dublin 1, Ireland.
Artists: Miriam O’Connor, Sarah Browne, Anne Tallentire and Vagabond Reviews. Curator: Valerie Connor. The Legacy Project session runs 2.15 sharp – 4pm. Co-presented by SIPTU and the NWCI in association with the History Ireland Hedge School. This is a free event, but booking is required: www.siptu.ie/services/equality/conference/
