The Darkroom





‘Merciful Hour’ an evening of experimental film and moving image artworks created in Ireland in reaction to the limited studio space and lack of funding available to artists, to which neither the cause nor the answer is single faceted. The event comprises a 40 minute screening of shorts that do not necessarily offer a solution or address the crisis directly but give an insight into the artist’s everyday struggle to maintain a practice, creating a sense of solidarity in a shared experience, showing that creativity does prevail in a bleak situation. The event will conclude with a 20 minute chaired discussion. Tickets are €8 and must be purchased on Eventbrite
