Waking the Feminists

Waking the Feminists

In residence at CCI, set designer and arts manager Lian Bell will discuss the highly successful campaign for equality for women in Irish theatre that she instigated under the hashtag #WakingTheFeminists. It began as a reaction to the dearth of plays written or directed by women in the Abbey Theatre’s Waking the Nation, the national theatre of Ireland’s programme marking the centenary of the 1916 Rising. The campaign “struck a match that has kept burning” across the Irish theatre community, and Lian will highlight its achievements over the last two years.
