home|work Collective

home|work collectively confronts the themes of censorship and self-censorship through art, action, performance, conversation and camradery. The title refers to the domestic policies of the Irish state that preclude access to abortion in the country. It is also a nod to the traditional sphere of work of women in Ireland and the practice of making change from within. home|work is situated at the interface of art and activism. It offers a forum for critical analysis through artistic exploration and a support network for the development of group interventions and individual works on themes of common interest. home|work and The Renunciation emerged from a research and development phase undertaken by artist Siobhán Clancy with activist members of the Abortion Rights Campaign. It is funded under The Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme managed by Create (The National Development Agency for Collaborative Arts) with mentorship by performance artist Áine Phillips.
