About Artists’ Campaign to Repeal the Eighth Amendment
The decision to set up the Artists’ Campaign to Repeal the Eighth Amendment came from conversations among a group of artists in February 2015 about the consequences of the 8th Amendment.

‘We were frustrated and extremely disappointed that, despite many shocking instances of neglect and mismanagement of women’s care as a result of the Eighth Amendment, there seemed to be a lack of political will to tackle what we saw as an urgent issue. We wanted to act and decided that we should appeal to our fellow working professional artists.

We have been very encouraged by the response of our colleagues, over 3,000 of whom have already attached their names to a statement calling for the repeal of the Amendment. A website has been launched to allow artists working in architecture, dance, film and television, literature, music, theatre and visual artists to add their own names to the list of supporters of the Artists’ Campaign to Repeal the Eighth Amendment. Sign at artistsrepealthe8th.com

Our aim is to communicate to the public, to the political parties, and in particular to the relevant ministers, that the artists who have attached their names to this statement believe the Amendment has been extremely damaging for women, and must be repealed.’

Claire has been General Manger of Project Arts Centre since 2013, overseeing management and operations, as well the development of Project's new strategic plan, Project 2020.

Christmas Shoebox Appeal 2017

Inner City Helping Homeless collected over 7,500 shoeboxes during their Dublin Fill a Luas appeal last Christmas. We want this year to be even bigger and we need your help. Christmas is fast approaching, and while the festive season is a time of celebration for most of us, it can also be a tough time for many people, not least the homeless community. Here in Temple Bar we’re acutely aware of the hardships faced by people who sleep rough on our streets, and with record increases in homelessness this year, now, more than ever, they need our help.
