Outburst, Dublin Fringe and GCN
THE NORTH IS NOW

FREE ADMISSION
ALL AGES
60 mins

In spring of this year, Dublin Fringe approached Outburst with the idea of doing a zine with GCN at September’s Fringe, responding to the desire of queer and reproductive right activists in the South of Ireland to support those in the North. We had no idea that in a matter of weeks Westminster would vote in the absence of an NI Assembly to introduce legalise same sex marriage and abortion in the North. After the initial cautious relief, our reaction was this: there is more work to be done.

The zine produced, THE NORTH IS NEXT, features artists and writers from both sides of the border who share their words and ideas around equality, activism, rage and belonging. Deciding it would be paper copies only and passed hand to hand, activist to activist, we present the Northern launch of the zine at this special events that asks if THE NORTH IS NOW, then what’s next for queer and feminist activism here?
What can we share and learn and how can art, writing and performance support that?
Come pick up your limited edition copy of the zine and join some of the contributors, ACT UP veteran Monica Pearl and and local nu-folk singer Dani for an hour of conversation and music on art, activism and change.

Zine contributors: Soak, Dawn Watson, Goretti Horgan, Stacey Gregg, Emma Campbell, Shannon Sickels, Una Mullally.
With thanks to Ruth McGowan, Dublin Fringe and Lisa Connell, GCN
