With the End in Mind

Book Now
With The End In Mind is an online conversation and will take place Friday, 21st May at 1pm.
This will be a three way conversation hosted by Katie Verling, she will be joined by Dominic Campbell from the Irish Hospice Foundation and Limerick based artist Joanne Ryan who is currently dealing with themes of death and dying in her work. The conversation will centre around how artists are doing this work, why they’re doing it and who they’re doing it for.

Katie Verling has been involved with the arts and creative sector all her life. In 2007 she received a bone marrow transplant as part of her treatment for acute leukaemia. This experience of life threatening illness intensified her interest in matters of mortality.  In 2015 she met the late Sinead Dinneen with whom she shared a morbid curiosity and a creative giddiness and together they devised the Kicking the Bucket project – a series of creative workshops using visual arts and literature to engage with experiences of death.  The workshops led to a radio documentary on RTE’s the Doc on One and a series of exhibitions in Limerick.

*This event will broadcast via Zoom, please ensure you have the Zoom app downloaded to your device. On Friday, May 21 at 12pm, we will send you a Zoom invite with instructions on how to access the event.
