As part of
Humanism ni Process: female performance art at work

&

Late Night Art Belfast

The Northern Irish society has experienced significant advances on equality matters and reconciliation after the Troubles. However, in an uncertain and volatile economic context worldwide, equality and respect for human rights must be cultivated on an ongoing basis. Art has a very important role to play in the realisation to this: influencing social customs, family and social relationships and inspiring individual in the interest of the collective. Performance art is based on human acts and behaviour, and has played a important role in the recognition of human diversity and the reinvention of forms of coexistence in many societies.

The politics of fear The moves to isolation Stopping migration of threatened peoples to safer territory Maintaining the pure race Capital seeking to over shadow the social Haves before have-nots Barriers and barricades Walls and fences Ins and outs Greed ignoring violences past At any cost
