On 7th December 2016, join the “SAOL project” to launch “OBJECT POVERTY”!


On Wednesday 7th of December 2016, the School of Nursing & Human Sciences, Dublin City University and the SAOL Project Dublin will launch ‘Object Poverty’, a socially engaged art project and exhibition created by the SAOL Project, a member of our Irish 17 October Committee and partner of ATD Ireland in the Our Voices project. The project was first presented on 17 October 2016 the UN International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.

The Object Poverty project, supported by a UN Day grant from the DSP, involved asking over 200 hundred people from a range of societal/occupational contexts this simple question:

“In your opinion what object(s) represent(s) poverty?”

The photographic exhibition translates and presents responses to this fundamental question and for this special launch incorporates contributions from students and staff involved in nursing, health and social care education programmes in the School of Nursing & Human Sciences, Dublin City University.

Guest speakers at the launch will include Maureen O Sullivan TD and Catriona Crowe, historian, documentary maker and chairperson of SAOL project.
