Words by Eimear

Project has foregrounded political, social and human rights issues right from its very beginnings at the gate Theatre in 1966, where Edna O’Brien spoke about censorship and its impact on her work and society. Art is not and should not be just entertainment – artists have the responsibility and power to inspire people to think differently about the world around them and to spark debate and generate conversations.”

Cian O’Brien, Artistic Director, Project Arts Centre


Repeal the 8th, Maser and HunReal Issues - Art and Exhibitions at Project Arts Centre, Dublin

Limited Edition Prints by Maser: You Can't Paint Over an Issue

June 1st 2018, at 09.33am


Since 2016 we have been steadfast in our support and trust in the work of Maser and The HunReal Issues. The Repeal the 8th mural, in all its forms, has become not only a poignant and impassioned emblem of the movement, but a brave icon of solidarity in a time of momentous and unprecedented change in Ireland. We are immensely proud to have stood behind their vision.

But our work isn’t done yet. Project Arts Centre has always placed the vision and freedom of expression of the artist at the centre of our work and now, in this post-referendum world, we believe there is more need than ever to protect the future and creative freedom of our artists.

We are grateful to Maser and The HunReal Issues for generously allowing us to use their art to help make this happen. By purchasing one of these artworks you will be supporting the next generation of independent Irish artists, enabling us to provide a creative space for artists and audiences alike. With your help we can ensure a legacy of work that will challenge, inspire, and can ultimately lead to change.
