‘Women Artists and Farmers’ Webinar with Limerick City Gallery Of Art at 2pm on #iwd 8th March #choosetochallenge. Running in conjunction with the new exhibition by Mary Burke #athomeontehfarm
A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day. We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequity. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
For IWD 2021 we have gathered a group of women who choose to challenge.
Each is a farmer, working on a farm of differing scale and size.
Each of these women shows a deep commitment to the land, the places in which they live and the fragile ecosystems which support all of us who share the planet.
Each is continually adapting her practice.
June Danaher runs a social farm in West Limerick, Sheila Flanagan raised in the city, runs Artfarm where she cultivates artistic and community practice, Lisa Fingleton farms in Kerry and is a practicing environmental artist as is Breda Larkin, farming her family homeplace and working as a comedian and performance artist. This webinar also features Mary Burke, the artist behind this exhibition At Home on the Farm.
Our chair for the IWD gathering is Ella McSweeney, a regular presenter on RTE’s very popular EAR TO THE GROUND, a writer and champion of farming. The discussion will explore each of the artist/farmer’s work, the challenges facing each of them in their farming lives as women and how they #ChallengeforChange.
