I was invited to introduce A Woman’s Work project on the Network Ireland annual conference on the 6th October. Very exciting as the event is hosting amazing business women from all over Ireland. Really looking forward to meet them and be part of this. Books will be on sale there too. All proceeds from the sales at the event will be donated to Tiglin Women’s centre which helps women affected by homelessness, drug and alcohol addiction. Part of the rehabilitation programme is an effort to help them gain work placements or courses.
This is the second part of the interview I did about my work and also about photographing amazing women for A Woman’s Work book.
Recently I did an interview about A Woman’s Work and other photography with Ruth Medjber for Adorama TV. This is a part one:
I’m very proud to have featured Eimear Noone, Irish conducter and composer, in the book. Eimear is now based in California and she conducts orchestras all over the world. Beyond that, she also composes music for big video games like World of Warcraft, Diablo, Metal Gear Solid, Starcraft 2 or Zelda. More about it in this great interview.
There was 18 backers who donated 100,- EUR to the Women for Election campaign and claimed to get A Woman’s Work book in return. That is 1.800,- out of 56.000 that the campaign raised. We are very proud. Now let’s see #MoreWomen in Irish politics.
Up until today A Woman’s Work book helped raise 1500,- in the #MoreWomen campaign. Very happy and proud. Can you help them get closer to the target? Just click here and donate. Signed A Woman’s Work is one of the rewards you can get for your financial contribution.
Little pop up gallery in Dunlavin Arts Festival in Wicklow. Lots of chatting about women being brilliant and few books sold. My husband, patient feminist, minded children mostly, but sold some books too 🙂
I always say that if all the amazing women in our book ruled the world we would be living in much different and much better place. World needs female perspective in politics and that is why I happily and proudly donated books to the Women for Election, a non-for-profit, non-partisan organisation whose vision is of an Ireland with balanced participation of women and men in political life. They launched their crowdfunding campaign in Twitter headquarters in Dublin and we really hope A Woman’s Work will help to reach their target.
This lady is an inspiration to many women who are thinking about changing their career path. Eleanor had worked as a nurse for 25 years. At the age of 42, when her youngest boy reached the age of eighteen, she decided she was going to start over. She applied to the National College of Art and Design and graduated a few years later with her Masters degree in Ceramic Design. Eleanor exhibits her work nationally, and internationally, and has a collection of ‘tactile’ pieces on permanent display in the Yingge Ceramic Museum in Taiwan.
We are very happy to be joining online forces with “The Shona Project”. It provides helpful and practical guides for the everyday issues and challenges experienced by girls. Tammy Darcy of The Shona Project organises anti bullying workshops at schools as well as talks about social media and kindness club. The Shona Project prompts girls to question how they value and treat themselves and each other and what role models they look up to. Here is an interview with Beta about ‘A Woman’s Work’ book:
