DATE: TBC in September 2017
VENUE: Dublin City Library and UCD
The goal of this project is to engage the UCD community, wider public, government and other stakeholders in arriving at a more pluralistic understanding of the legacy of 1916, utilizing the Moore Street market and its environs as a lens. This will be achieved through a public exhibition showcasing our research (funded by the IRC) on the interplay and tensions between narratives of identity, urban redevelopment agendas and market trader livelihoods. The exhibit will be used to promote a more inclusive representation of recent debates around the area, its historical significance and future role, while helping to give greater voice to marketplace traders and other everyday users of Moore Street.
