Dublin Fringe Festival, GCN & Outburst Queer Arts Festival

Special Event

THE NORTH IS NEXT

Dates: 07 Sep - 07 Sep

Show Time: 2pm

Tickets: €10

Dublin Fringe Festival and GCN have joined forces to commission a zine to spotlight and support the drive for queer and reproductive rights in Northern Ireland, in partnership with Outburst Queer Arts Festival, Belfast.

It’s 2019. The 1.8 million people who live in Northern Ireland still don’t have marriage equality or access to abortion services. Their human rights have been encroached on for decades. Part care package, part activist artwork, this forum invites creators and thinkers from all over the island to illuminate a global blind-spot. It’s a creative call-out to foster a collective urgency to support the work of grassroots organisations just over the border.

The zine will be launched on the opening weekend of Dublin Fringe Festival as GCN host a live Q+A: The Queer and Alternative Podcast event with readings from the zine and a panel discussion about the artistic responses within its pages.

As part…

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…
