The Best Banned in the Land: A Forum on Censorship of Artistic Expression
Brendan Behan said it best: the finest Irish writers were all banned at some time. From James Joyce to Edna O’Brien, none escaped the censors’ wrath.
The ordered removal of Maser’s Repeal the 8th mural has brought censorship to the fore once again. Is freedom of artistic expression being limited in Ireland? Are issues such as funding, promotion, social media restrictions and discrimination creating conditions for self-censorship? Join a host of artists and activists as we remember and examine censorship.
Join a host of artists and activists as we remember and examine censorship from 11am to 4pm at Project Arts Centre. A light lunch will be provided.
This event is organised by the Irish Council for Civil Liberties, Irish Writers Centre, Poetry Ireland and Writers’ Guild, and is kindly supported by Dublin UNESCO City of Culture.
