This exhibition explored the lives of six people who influenced Irish prison reform. Their stories were highly complex and sensitive.
For Scroope Designthe process involved a very close engaged collaboration with the client Prf. Catherine Cox, Dr. Oisin Wall and Dr. Sinead McCann, the Centre for the History of Medicine in Ireland, University College Dublin. The process was streamlined with hte terrific input from Broan Crowley, Curator Kilmainham Gaol Museum.
The exhibition comprised artefacts loaned from variius national institutions and featured wonderful photography by Derek Spiers.
It opened in February and over five months drew huge attendance making it one of the most popular temporary exhibitions hosted in the Gaol.
The exhibition is part of a wider on-going study by the client group in association with the Welcome Trust. We hope to see it re-displayed in a permanent location in the near future.
