I am One in Four, photovoice exhibition on experiences of childhood sexual abuse - Dublin, 13-19 May
One in Four invites members of the public to attend I am One in Four – an exhibition of photographs and words produced by people who have experienced childhood sexual violence.
The exhibition presents stories of childhood sexual abuse in Ireland which is hidden in plain sight – and the victims are silenced by shame, stigma and fear. It is also about their healing through telling their stories.
Commissioned by One in Four, it takes place at the Liffey Corner at the CHQ building in Dublin’s George’s Dock and be open to the public from Monday, 13 May – Sunday 19 May. It is free of charge and open from 9am-6.30pm.
Conducted by Sociologist Dr Maria Quinlan and visual artist Patrick Bolger, the project highlights most strongly the theme of silence in the experiences of people who were sexually violated as children. The exhibition uses an approach called photovoice in which participants provide powerful personal testimonies through the combination of storytelling and photos.
The exhibition takes place in the days leading up to the 10 year anniversary of publication of the Ryan Report on 20 May.
