The People's History of Galway

Galway Arts Center, 2011

''If you want to know me, you have to take my experiences into account'' Hannagh Mc Ginley, GTM

For this work my point of enquiry was on the importance of equal representation in Public and Civic Instutites. If a museum's remit is to reflect a society and its own culture back to itself, they why are all these diverse members of the community not seen in a museum ? Who chooses historical representation?

I worked with members of Galway LGBT, One World Center and Galways Traveller Movement to create visual exhibithions that represented their histories. These were shown in The Galway Arts Center and in public spaces within the City.
