This special evening of words and song broadcast from the stage of the National Concert Hall presents personal responses from a range of leading Irish writers, musicians and artists to the ongoing legacy of Ireland’s mother and baby home institutions.

Until alarmingly recently, religious orders and the Irish state operated a network of institutions for the concealment, punishment and exploitation of women called ‘fallen’ and ‘offenders’, a secretive system that forcibly separated families.

Through breaking silences and sharing testimonies, survivors of Ireland’s religious-run institutions have become catalysts of change. In the search for answers, their voices must continue to be heard.

Working with generational survivors of the institutions, this one-off live event is curated by acclaimed author of Republic of Shame, Caelainn Hogan.
