Saturday 17 September, 3.30 to 5.30pm
Aboard the 73m barge, Grand Canal Dock, via Waterways Ireland Visitor’s Centre, Grand Canal Quay, Dublin 2.
Cis O’Boyle and Rachel Anderson are founders of idle women (on the water) and caretakers of the Selina Cooper, England’s first floating women’s arts centre. Constantly moving, it hosts a series of artists-in-residence, workshops, and events, providing both a visiting arts venue and resource centre for women as it navigates the canals and waterways across Britain. Throughout 2016 they are based between Blackburn and Barrowford on the Leeds to Liverpool Canal, working in partnership with Super Slow Way. Curator Anne Mullee will lead a post-talk discussion about the genesis and ambition of this exciting project.
