Pre-Texts at the Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation in Ireland

Dublin , Ireland

Our colleague, artist Laragh Pittman, led a Pre-Texts workshop for women at the Irish Writers Centre in November 2018 in Dublin. The workshop was part of a publication report on the Glencree Centre’s work entitled Dialogues with Muslim Communities in Ireland. As part of their work with the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission, they used Pre-Texts to look at key Human Rights texts in a relaxed, sociable and innovative way. They explored making the wordy documents more relevant to their lives and found ways to contribute their own voices, particularly those of Muslim women in Ireland. They shared in different languages, used visual arts and spoken word, and listened to each others’ experiences.
