In:Visible Women is a concept and platform within the Liverpool Irish Festival, generated by conversations with artists, academics, activists, audiences and communities about the role of women in Irish society and creativity – today and historically.
Taking the form of both an event of it’s own and a trail through aspects of the #LIF2018 programme, In:Visible Women is embedded in to the very fabric of the Liverpool Irish Festival.
This year we have contributions from a number of national and local organisations, incredible artists and emerging talent. We will reflect on the difficulties still presented to women – particularly those in Ireland or of Irish descent – as well as the space gained in the last 12 months. Further to Ireland’s referendum about body autonomy, a number of #LIF2018 events will consider women’s rights to choose their futures, rights to their own body and the various positions they have been given or had diminished, in Irish cutlure, over time.
We are still building this year’s programme, ready to announce in late summer, but it will run ahead of The Guilty Feminist event at the Playhouse; it will feature some impressive and empowered women and it will be accessible to all. You can look at last year’s pamplet for a flavour of what we offer here, but please standby for more in formation on speaker announcements, ticket purchasing, times (those offered here are provisional) and location.
This event has been supported by the Eleanor Rathbone Charitable Trust.Book Now Ticket prices and bursary information will follow shortly
