Our Arts Development Manager, Emma Connors was invited to a terrific event in the Dochas Centre (Women's Prison) yesterday. In the company of 150 other women - prisoners, ex-prisoners, staff, sports personalities, artists and other women of influence we listened to a terrific panel of women tell and share their personal stories.

Set against the backdrop of the all female prison located at Mountjoy Prison, Every Woman Every Story gathered female leaders across the spectrum of Irish society including Norah Casey, Minister Katherine Zappone, retired Supreme Court Judge Catherine McGuinness and Paula Kearney who is a former prisoner now training in peer support.
