Behind the Veil – Our Journey to Freedom

A showcase of 3D art installations to highlight the Global 16 Days Campaign which seeks to eliminate all gender- based violence. 

Opening Times: 10am-12pm | Saturday 25th November 2023 | The Whale Theatre 

Greystones Family Resource Centre in partnership with Bray Women’s Refuge are working together with a group of women who are themselves survivors of domestic violence and they have designed and created this showcase themselves. Join us for coffee and to weave a star to add to the Million Stars Campaign which we are also including in this event. All donations to Bray Women’s Refuge.

The One Million Stars Ireland project is an inclusive community arts project connecting communities across Ireland in solidarity against domestic abuse and all forms of violence.  Each eight-point star represents light, hope and solidarity against domestic, sexual and gender based violence, promoting the project’s eight points of healthy love within relationships. 

The One Million Stars Ireland project is part of the global One Billion Stars project, founded in Australia in 2012 by artist Maryann Talia Pau after the rape and murder of an Irish woman living in Melbourne.  The project is being directed in Ireland by Art Therapist Siobhan McQuillan and Amber Women’s Refuge in Kilkenny.  There are now star weaving communities in 25 counties across Ireland.  Together with groups, businesses and individual star weavers across the country we have already woven over 250,000 stars to end violence in Ireland.
