GCN presents

Special Event

#CALLITOUT - A Queer Perspective

Dates: 05 Jun - 05 Jun

Show Time: 6:30-8pm

Tickets: €5-3

GCN in conjunction with TENI and the Call It Out campaign present an evening of conversation exploring the complex and multifaceted nature of homophobia, biphobia and transphobia as experienced by LGBT+ people in today’s Ireland.

‘Call It Out’ is a new civil society campaign to highlight and address the harm caused by homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in Ireland. The campaign is being led by the Transgender Equality Network of Ireland (TENI) and the team from the Hate and Hostility Research Group at the University of Limerick.

Despite recent positive changes for LGBT+ people in Ireland, many still experience harassment and intimidation simply because of who they are.

The results of a survey conducted by HHRG showed that while only 36% of respondents believed that violence against the LGBT+ community is a serious problem in this country, it reported that in actuality, one in five, or 21% of those surveyed, have been punched, hit or physically attacked in public for being LGBT+.

Join our fantastic panel of guests in conversation with journalist and author Una Mullally.

Panel guests include:
Ellen Murray (TENI)
Brendan Courtney
Paddy Smyth
Shubhangi Karmakar and more to be announced.

There will be a limited amount of Call It Out merchandise up for grabs for ticket holders including the beautiful Call it Out T-shirts! Proceeds from ticket sales in support of GCN & TENI

As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
