Illuminate Herstory @ SLIGO CITY HALL
Friday 6th January, 6.30pm
As part of the Illuminate Herstory Festival and in celebration of Nollaig na mBan, artist Emma Stroude will be exhibiting a series of drawings at City Hall, Sligo. She has worked extensively on portraiture of women from recent Irish history who have made a significant and positive difference to the lives of modern Irish women. The aim of her work is to reignite a presence of these women, some lesser known, to highlight their legacy and to contribute to new conversations on the stories of their remarkable lives.
On Friday evening at 6.30pm Emma will be giving a talk about the development of her work and the lives of the women she has drawn. You may remember seeing her work during the 1916 Commemorations last Easter as large scale projections of women of The Rising on Rockwood Parade alongside the Garavogue River.
We will also have some poetry reading and light refreshments. All are welcome.
