Visual Artists Ireland, in partnership with East Side Arts have organised an event  for people to find out more about the visual arts exhibition spaces, studios, resources and collectives in East Belfast.

This networking and information event will be an excellent opportunity to meet other artists and arts organisations in an informal setting.

In the afternoon artist Deirdre Robb has been invited to participate in the ‘Show & Tell’ event where she will talk about her work in a quickfire 5 minute presentation. There will then be a chance to relax and chat over a glass or two of wine at the end of the afternoon.

Monday 7th March
Oh Yeah Music Centre

7pm-10pm : Free : Licenced Bar


Robb has been asked to  create an Visual Installation ‘PAUSAL’ taken from her current work Inspired by my experience of entering the menopause. The sculptural sound installation relates to the emotional and physical changes impacted by withdrawal of oestrogen leaving the body. Tension, pain and beauty are contained within the work that is intended to create dialogue about the effects that menopause can have on a woman’s life.

This special event curated by Over The Hill Music Collective will explore the issues and discussion that surrounds the representation of older women in music, art and popular culture. Interspersed throughout the evening will be examples of work from three local female artists. This work will be a combination of personal, shared and collected experiences manifested through music, visual art and verbal interpretation.
