Dublin Fringe Festival and GCN have joined forces to commission a zine to spotlight and support the drive for queer and reproductive rights in Northern Ireland, in partnership with Outburst Queer Arts Festival, Belfast.
It’s 2019. The 1.8 million people who live in Northern Ireland still don’t have marriage equality or access to abortion services. Their human rights have been encroached on for decades. Part time capsule, part activist artwork, this forum invites creators and thinkers from all over the island to illuminate a global blind-spot. It’s a creative call-out to foster a collective urgency to support the work of grassroots organisations just over the border.
The zine will be launched on the opening weekend of Dublin Fringe Festival as GCN host a live Q+A: The Queer and Alternative Podcast event with readings from the zine and a panel discussion about the artistic responses within its pages.
