REWIND<<FASTFORWARD>>RECORD (RFR) will take up a three-week residency in the Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre in July 2022. Working with local community groups, the project will explore the rich LGBTQ+ history through a Cork lens creating new artworks that will be installed as part of the exhibition in the Centre alongside the work created with Fatima Groups United - Out South Central LGBT+ and the Youth Work Ireland Midlands group that was exhibited in IMMA. The discussion, response, and inclusion of local groups' voices are an important part of RFR's ethos and the evolution of this project as it moves to various national locations.

Workshop with LGBTQ+ youth group
Facilitated by Sarah Edmondson
In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the history of modern Irish LGBTQ+ activism and a selection of placards and banners that have been used during various LGBTQ+ protests.
This will be followed by a placard-making workshop facilitated by artist and educator Sarah Edmondson, where participants will be guided through a process of combining typography with line drawings to create strong visual statements.
The final placards will be exhibited in the Workshop Space at Uillinn during the RFR exhibition.
