X-ile Project Milestone: #facethe50!!!

On May 12th 2017, X-ile Project reached our significant goal of bringing the gallery to FIFTY participants! We have been working on the gallery since mid-2015 and we are thrilled with the progress we have made in collaboration with 50 spectacular women, our dedicated photographers, our graphic designer, the bands who helped us raise funds, the Coalition to Repeal the Eighth Amendment and all of our committed supporters. X-ile Project is proud and grateful to work with such a strong community of people. 

We have taken photographs all around the country, north and south, and in Europe and North America. We are routinely contacted by people all over the world who say that the women in our gallery are inspirational––and of course, we agree. 

Next month X-ile Project will be involved in A Day of Testimonies, an event organised by Artists to Repeal the Eighth Amendment and Project Arts Centre. On Saturday, August 26th, Ireland's leading artists will come together for a day of film, theatre, performance and visual art. Ticket information is coming soon so keep an eye on the event page. 

We are also gearing up for Abortion Rights' Campaign 6th annual March for Choice, and we want this to be the biggest march ever! Make sure to mark Saturday, September 30th in your diary with a big red REPEAL 8, and bring your parents, your family, your friends, your co-workers, your partners, your neighbours! NOW is the #timetoact for #repealthe8th #repealnotreplace!

Looking forward to seeing our supporters are these upcoming events! For now, check out our absolutely groundbreaking #facethe50 participants <3 <3 <3

March 4 Choice / Strike 4 Repeal

X-ile Project members, photographers and participants were out in force on March 8th. We started on O'Connell Bridge handing out our new badges and flyers. Then we kept up the action that evening at the March 4 Repeal when thousands marched to the Dáil to protest the 8th Amendment. Siobhán Butler did a shoot for the gallery before the march, and Rachel McIntyre took some fantastic photos during the day. Check out Rachel's photos!
