“In addition to the Contemporary Artists of the Donegal Diaspora in the RCC’s Main Gallery the building will be fit-to-bursting with other Diaspora related art projects. Scottish artist Rachael Flynn’s mixed media exhibition is a creative exploration of the memories of migration handed down within the Irish Diaspora, in particular a celebration of the women’s stories.”
Congratulations to Scottish Centre for Island Studies UWS PhD student Rachael Flynn on her successful exhibition this summer at Donegal’s largest arts festival, the Earagail Arts Festival. The festival celebrates 25 years with a programme that honours the true creative spirit of County Donegal. See details of Rachael’s work at http://www.eaf.ie/events/rachael-flynn/. Rachael’s doctoral research project has informed the basis of her submission and this exhibition is a culmination of this creative practice work on Irish women’s stories of migration and diaspora (see also http://womenslibrary.org.uk/event/irish-women-of-our-past/). Rachael is a postgraduate student in the School of Creative and Cultural Industries, University of the West of Scotland and is supervised by Dr Kathryn A Burnett and Mr Tony Grace.
