Fold and Rise Workshop with Julie Griffiths

A feminist perspective on the folding and unfolding of time.

This intimate, multi-disciplinary workshop combines performative action, discussion, and audience participation, in an exploration of the contribution of women, in culture and politics, over the last 100 years.


Responding to the lecture on Constance Markievicz by Pauline Conroy, commissioned by the School of her name, which examines this seminal female figure in Irish history, the workshop observes how chronologically disparate moments speak to each other, and asks where Constance would be today.

‘The fold’ is used as a metaphor, to represent the progression of time, and as symbolic of the traditional labour of women. An invited community of interest participate in a series of sensory actions, considerations and discussions. A set of pamphlets, containing gathered reflections, will be produced as outcome.

Originally trained in textile design, Julie Griffiths is an educator and social practitioner. Her main focus of interest lies in materiality / immateriality, and community as social construct. Till/Until, her most recent project, involved planting and weaving an acre of flax, as an investigation into our relationship with place, and how we create our sense of belonging.
