Choosing Choice: Packing Up Stigma Exhibition

September 26, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - September 29, 2013 @ 7:00 pm

Choosing Choice: Packing Up Stigma Exhibition features photographic works from ‘Against the Tide’ by Rose Comiskey (Ireland), ‘When They Hold Their Hands Out Like Scales’ by Emma Campbell (Northern Ireland) and digitised print works from ‘Good Women Have Abortions’ by Heather Ault (USA) with curatorial support by Jennette Donnelly.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE: The public is invited to contribute to the show in a drop-in mixed-media workshop from 14:00 – 20:30 on Thursday 26th September hosted by the Abortion Rights Campaign at The Exchange, Templebar, Dublin 2.

You don’t need to be an artist to pack a suitcase so anyone can take part! The outcomes of this workshop will be presented as part of the installation ‘Choosing Choice: Packing Up Stigma’; a collection of cases packed with stories, artefacts and representations confronting the stigma and silence associated with abortion experiences, particularly for those who have had to travel abroad due to the restrictions placed on access to abortion services on the island of Ireland. This installation will compliment the range of multi-media and live formats through which we invite women who have had abortions to share their experiences in a safe and respectful space.

Choosing Choice Exhibition is open 12-8pm daily 26-29th September 2013.
