Panel Discussion and Screening Exploring Women, Politics and Civil Rights at IMMA

Lecture Room, Saturday 25 May, 13.00 to 14.30.

IMMA is delighted to present a timely discussion and screening with an esteemed panel of creative practitioners, educators, writers and activists to reflect on processes of agitation and commemoration in addressing the ‘change and challenge’ to the role of women within civil rights, politics and art today.

A dynamic panel features Susan McKay, author, journalist; Michelle Brown, artist, curator; Kitty Holland, writer, journalist; Kate Cunningham, Women’s Museum of Ireland; Pat Murphy, feminist filmmaker – who draw on IMMA’s programme to offer shared and diverging points of view.

A screening follows the discussion, from 15.15 – 17.00, featuring the iconic film Maeve (1981), by Pat Murphy. This experimental film offers a feminist alternative narrative of The Troubles in dealing with unresolved questions of feminism, nationalism, history and myth.
