Following the guidance issued by the Government of Ireland on 12 March in relation to new measures to contain Covid-19, Galway Domestic Violence Response, Engage Art Studios and Galway 2020 made the decision to cancel the exhibition.

While Galway Domestic Violence Response, Engage Art Studios and Galway 2020 are extremely disappointed to have made these decisions, public health is our number one priority and we must follow Government advice.
