I am delighted to have been invited to curate ‘STILL, WE WORK’, in Donegal with the support of the Regional Culture Centre. Working closely with the artists and the National Women’s Council of Ireland has allowed me to develop new cross-sectoral collaborations that will articulate and explore some of the key issues for women in the wider context of socio-political debate within a cross- border region
The recent strike of the Dunnes Workers is just the latest manifestation of a dangerous erosion in the quality and security of jobs that women are experiencing. As a unique collaboration of artists and NWCI, this exhibition recognizes the paid and unpaid, seen and unseen work that women do and highlights the intrinsic links between women’s work and the inequalities that women widely experience in society. STILL, WE WORK provides an exciting opportunity for artists and NWCI members to come together, share their experiences and build a discussion about women, work and equality today.
