Title of Exhibition: Lived Lives: From Tory Island to Swift’s Asylum.

Date: Monday 12th March until Friday 23rd March

About the Exhibition:

Suicide is the leading cause of death of young adults in Ireland and the UK, cloaked in stigma and shame. The durational arts-science collaborative model, Lived Lives addresses the stigma of suicide in a safe space through restoring identity of loved ones lost to suicide and acknowledging the loss to families in a nonjudgmental and compassionate setting. Lived Lives is a travelling exhibition that includes the border communities of Donegal, Leitrim and Tory Island, as well as the community of St Patrick’s University Hospital Dublin, Ireland’s oldest psychiatric institution, established following a donation from Jonathan Swift (1746). The exhibition is made possible with the informed permission of the Lived Lives Families.
