I Am One in Four

A must see photovoice exhibition

One in Four would like to invite you to ‘I Am One in Four’ - an exhibition of photographs and words produced by people who have experienced childhood sexual violence.

This is the story of childhood sexual violence in Ireland – it is ubiquitous, hidden in plain sight, hidden by perpetrators, the victims often silenced by shame, stigma and fear. This exhibition aims to be a further step towards breaking the silence that clouds our collective consciousness of the nature of childhood trauma and sexual violence in Ireland.

This exhibition is an output of a collaborative research project conducted by sociologist Dr. Maria Quinlan and visual artist Patrick Bolger on behalf of One in Four.

The objective of this project is to use a method of participatory photography known as photovoice as a means through which people who have experienced childhood sexual violence can share their experiences. Through images and words they have provided powerful testimonies.

The exhibition was launched at a private donor event at 6.00pm on Monday 5th November in Dublin City Council Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8
