11am-1pm. Thursday 20 February
To celebrate the Herstory: Ireland’s Epic Women TV Series on RTE, EPIC have a long list of exciting activities planned, all exploring the stories of inspiring Irish emigrant women.
Do you have a mini- trail blazer at home? EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum is full of the stories of inspiring women who have made a positive impact around the world – from Sister Cyril Mononey, who helped disadvantaged children in India to gain an education, to Mother Jones, who fought for worker’s rights in 19th and 20th century New York, to Mary Lee, one of the foremost campaigners for women’s suffrage in Australia. Now you can follow in their footsteps in this creative poster making workshop!
Suitable for ages 7 – 12 years old, we’ll first explore the stories of pioneering Irish women from around the world, drawing on their lives for inspiration to come up with our own causes and passions – whether it’s climate change, human rights, healthy eating, or beyond! Then, using a range of crafting materials, we’ll each create our very own poster championing our favourite cause, coming up with some fun practical ways that we can begin to help our community right now!

Children who attend this workshop can avail of entry to EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum’s main exhibition for free, while accompanying adults are entitled to a 20% discount on tickets to EPIC – simply show a staff member your ticket to avail of the offer.
