This is the up-graded show! It includes a whole new set of clothes for the 2000s, representing key issues facing the women of SAOL throughout the 17 years of this new millenium. The show will also see the launch of 'Object2Poverty'; a new art campaign alerting people to poverty in Ireland and calling for action.
For the past number of years SAOL has held an event called ‘Hands Across the Bridge’. We have adapted this from two international events/campaigns. ‘Join me on a Bridge’ is a campaign for women’s equality that started with Rwandan and Congolese women, who met on a bridge joining their two countries as a demonstration that women could build bridges of peace. Hands across the Bridge is a campaign that celebrates survival of domestic violence and /or addiction.
