We Will Not Sit Down and Be Quiet!
"Tallaght Community Art - DoubleTAKE Supported Arts Studio artists present their Advocacy through the Arts - film and portrait installation.
The Artist Advocates, many of whom have spent their entire lives living and working within Ireland's institutionalised disability care sector, speak out about their rights. They do this not just for themselves but for those who are unable to and for those who follow in their footsteps.
By situating the exhibition/installation at the OPW/Pearse Museum, - a place of arts, education and activism, steeped in Irish history and borne of the desire to reclaim culture and identity - our Artist Advocates stand shoulder to shoulder to claim their rights, demand respect and request your solidarity.
Their film in the OPW/Pearse Museum Gallery is accompanied by an installation of the 17 advocate’s images on aluminium in the museum’s walled garden"
