South Tipperary Arts Centre will also host an accompanying one day symposium. The symposium, The Age of Reason/Unreason will be live streamed from STAC on Saturday, May 29th and will include guest speaker, Rose Ann Kenny, Professor of Medical Gerontology at Trinity College. Na Cailleacha members will present a series of workshops around their practices. They hope to interrogate Gloria Steinem’s idea that women become more radical with age and to open their experiences to a wider cohort, to people who are interested in creativity, to its impact on health and to those who wonder where the feminist activists of the 1970s, 80s and 90s stand now, to the places of witches and wise women in contemporary society and to the way collectives help to forge friendships and to make art.
