'Ain't I A Woman

Ain’ti a Woman?” is the name given to a speech, delivered extemporaneously, by Sojourner Truthborn into slavery in New York State. Sometime after gaining her freedom in 1827, she became a well known anti-slavery speaker. Her speech was delivered at the Women’s Convention in Akron, Ohio, on May 29, 1851. Within the exhibition space of South Tipperary Arts Centre, 8 Tipperary-based  female artists will respond to Sojourney Truth’s original 1851 speech exploring womanhood in all its glorious complexity, from fragility and despair to empowerment and outspokenness. The event will be a combination of cabaret, installations, performances and exhibits and will be an opportunity to Half exhibition, half performance, experience within one space the multiple voices, representations and incarnations of women in Tipperary today.
