This open event, run jointly by Queen’s University, Ulster University, and Belfast Exposed, marks the start of an exciting larger project, LGBTQ Visions of Peace in a Society Emerging from Conflict, that will explore the public and political impact the arts can have in making queer visions of a peaceful, inclusive society.
Featuring talks by project investigators Drs. Fidelma Ashe (UU), Catherine Gander (QUB) and Steffi Lehner (QUB), the event will also host art and discussion by Ciara Hickey (Belfast Exposed), Niall Rea (TheatreofplucK), Eoin Dara (The MAC), Dr. Cormac O’Brien (University College Dublin), Ruth McCarthy (Outburst), and John O’Doherty (Rainbow Project).
What does it mean to ‘queer’ the lens on visions of what makes ‘home’ in a post- conflict society such as ours?
This event explores the challenges and methods of such an enterprise, inviting you to join the discussion.
