The importance of art in social action and activism has long been demonstrated - as a tool to create visibility, encourage conversation and stimulate change.
With a focus on the Marriage Equality and Abortion Rights campaigns in ROI and NI, Activists and Filmmakers involved in these campaigns discuss how recent referendum victories in the Republic (and the films created for these campaigns) have affected Northern Ireland. How best can our activist communities work together to use art and film as an agent for change?
Speakers: Gillian Callan (Director, Equal), Wuraola Majekodunmi (Broadcaster and Video-maker), Treasa O’Brien (Director, Town of Strangers), Anna Rodgers (Director, Strong At The Broken Places).
A screening of Gillian Callan’s short film EQUAL will follow the discussion.
