Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture, Galway Domestic Violence Response and Engage Art Studios are delighted to present Home Truths.
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.
Galway 2020’s Small Towns Big Ideas project Home Truths is now available to experience as a digital exhibition. The project looks at women’s experience of and engagement with the Irish courts and legal system in dealing with domestic violence and abuse.
