Souls of our Shoes – an art exhibition on the topic of domestic abuse in Ballincollig
An provocative exhibition which is touring Ireland has arrived at the Carraig Centre in Ballincollig, Co. Cork.
It walks viewers through the reality of domestic abuse – ‘Souls of our Shoes – A journey into and out of Domestic Abuse’ will be on display.
This incredibly powerful and compelling exhibition is an initiative of Mothers’ Union Ireland and its main purpose is to raise awareness of domestic violence.
Souls of Our Shoes is an exhibition of physical shoes accompanied by comments from those who have walked away from abuse.
Individuals and groups are welcome to drop in during this time to view the exhibition and stand in solidarity with all who experience domestic abuse.
Rector of Carrigrohane Union of Parishes, Revd Robert Ferris commented –
“The issue of Domestic Violence is one of those hidden topics which face every street, community and society around the world. It is surrounded in secrecy, shame and pain. Statistics are horrifying 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men suffer from some sort of violence / abuse. By raising this issue in the public domain we want to say its not right, there is help available. I am thankful to the team here at the Carraig Centre for preparing and staffing this important national exhibition. “
The exhibition is open at the West Wing of the Carraig Centre, Old Quarter Ballincollig, P31 PV20 10am -12noon every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday of August.
