Full Event Details

Two new exhibitions, the State of the Art: Transformative Memories in Political Violence exhibition, and the #Connected2: Climate and Food Systems exhibition are presented in a digital format in the Smashing Times Virtual Arts Centre.

State of the Art: Transformative Memories in Political Violence highlights the role of art in post-conflict transformative work and in transforming memory arising out of political violence, bringing together the work of twenty artists from the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, England, Pakistan, Canada, Uganda, Indonesia, Colombia and Argentina, whose work explores conflict, war and the telling of stories arising out of political violence. The artists’ work is a response to conflict in a range of countries including the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Uganda, Indonesia, Colombia, Argentina, Nigeria, Syria, Chile, Palestine, Peru, Mexico, Spain, Poland and Germany and is also a means through which society can examine historic conflicts, enabling open discussion and exploration to play a part in the healing process, to provoke conversations, questions and an exploration of key issues.

#Connected2: Climate and Food Systems is created by GOAL’s NextGen Youth members from across Ireland, Ethiopia, Honduras, Malawi, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. Through the pertinent themes of Global Food Systems and Climate Change, participants learned how each relates to global citizenship and development. They created this photo exhibition to share their learnings with you and hope to raise awareness of how climate change is affecting our food systems.

Both exhibitions will be available online for a period of one year.
