From immediately after the March with Tea, Coffee, and Cakes for Choice you’ll be able to hang out with other amazing pro-choice people and activists in The Complex on Little Green St. (just off Capel St., around the corner from Outhouse!)
Pro-Choice Chill-out zone: Music, Cake, Exhibitions, and More!
From 16:00 – 18:00: come rest your weary feet in the Complex, where we’ll have food, tea, cake, comfy couches, music, exhihibtions, and activities. Take a photo in the #NotAVessel photobooth and have the craic with pro-choice allies!
Speak for Choice: Abortion Speak Out
From 18:00 – 19:45 Speak for Choice aims to normalise the topic of abortion and celebrate its honest discussion, all within a safe environment that privileges sharing not debate. You can Speak Out here about personal experience of abortion, or of personal experiences in pro-choice activism. The event will provide a safe space to speak out and articulate your experiences and views as we celebrate how individuals have expressed their protest of the 8th Amendment and how networks of support and activism have formed. You are invited to share your personal anecdotes, essays, music, artwork and short films about your abortion and your pro-choice activism on the night.
You are welcome to send digital images, music files and short films (under 20 minutes) in advance to [email protected] so we can show them during the Speak Out. Proposals for live performances can also be submitted to this email address by midnight on Thursday 24th September for consideration.
Spoken Word and Music for Choice!
From 20:00 there will be performances featuring the indomitable pro-choice performance group Speaking of I.M.E.L.D.A and the amazing spoken word collective PETTYCASH. Stay on to enjoy live music featuring Sissy and Fierce Mild!
We’ll have a wine reception, spectacular nibbles, and all the tea you can handle!
Join us on Saturday 26th after the March for Choice, all welcome!
