Exhibition, Open Piano Session & Film Screening at North Clondalkin Library
North Clondalkin Library presents a diverse programme of events for Culture Night Dublin 2023. From 5pm, Sonas is hosting the exhibition ‘A Picture Paints a Thousand Words’ featuring 16 portraits of victims of femicide and filicide. The aim of this event is to raise awareness of the impact of domestic abuse and femicide in Ireland, to promote the collaborative effort for accountability, and to inspire guests that a world without domestic violence is possible. Sonas is the largest provider of the front-line services for victims of domestic abuse in the country. They provide refuge, safe homes, transitional housing, outreach, crisis intervention, helpline, and court accompaniment services to victims of domestic abuse. They support approximately 1,250 women and children in our services each year.
From 5.30pm, all ebony and ivory tinklers, bringers of nocturnes, ragtime, jazz, trad and ‘come-all-ye’s’ are invited to call into North Clondalkin Library, have a go on their keyboard and join in the fun.
At 6pm, visitors are invited to attend a screening of the Oscar nominated Irish language film An Cailín Ciúin. This debut film by director Colm Bairéad is adapted from the short story, Foster, by Claire Keegan and is one of the most celebrated Irish films of recent years.
