Description

NCCWN Clare Women’s Network is delighted to once again present ‘Silence + Voice, A Festival of FeminismS’ in Danlann an Chlair, Ennis on the 19th and 20th of October.

Saturday October 19th 9am - 5:30pm and Sunday October 20th 9:30am - 5:30pm

This unique event will offer 400 participants an opportunity to reflect creatively on silence and voice as part of their journey as women in Ireland.

Speakers at the two day event will include feminists and activists from around the country. This year we will be guided by but not limited to overarching themes of:

- Feminism

- Anti-racism

- Environmentalism

- Militarism

The speakers will be joined by local musicians, singers, poets and artists, with some dancing and acting thrown in for good measure! An informal babysitting service is available but MUST be booked in advance as places are limited. The event will also include Irish Sign Language Interpreters.

This is a festival open to anyone from any background, with an interest in the many issues affecting women, which will arise over the course of the two days. All are welcome. Come and support women – in Silence + Voice.


TICKETS range from a very reasonable €20 - €50 for the two days - a light lunch each day is included.

To make this event inclusive we offer three ticket prices:

- For individuals, please choose €20

- If you or your community group can afford to sponsor you as a representative, please choose €35
