Acting out for Hope and Change

Come along and support Gateway Member Gregoria Gumpal and her fellow actors in ACTING OUT FOR HOPE AND CHANGE 8PM 28 APRIL 2011

Project Arts Centre - Theatre Space Upstairs By Domestic Workers Action Group (DWAG) & Rampant Productions Tickets €5


ACTING OUT FOR HOPE AND CHANGE is a series of powerful and provocative dramatisations scripted and performed by members of the Domestic Workers Action Group. The production is the result of ten weeks of drama workshops between Rampant Productions and the women of DWAG.Using improvisation, drama and interviews, the performance examines the hopes and realities of the women, who all share one common experience of being migrant women living and working in the homes of their employers as childminders and caregivers.‘Acting Out’ raises questions about the treatment of migrant women who perform the essential ‘Care Work’ in our society today. It also explores the importance of being unified to challenge and overcome barriers faced, and what being part of the group means to the women.

The Domestic Workers Action Group, supported by the Migrant Rights Centre Ireland, was established in 2004 to empower women employed as childminders, cleaners and caregivers to fight for their rights.

Make a Ripple

See Change - 'Make a Ripple' needs your help

In May 2011, See Change will launch Make a Ripple; a campaign to build an online community of ambassadors, advocates, story tellers and volunteers who can help them reduce the stigma associated with mental health problems.

After the launch, they will be inviting everyone to visit the site and make a ripple. Before that though, they need to gather 100 contributions so that the site has lots of stories and pledges when we open it up to the public.

They are asking for your help by signing up as one of our first 100 ambassadors. We only need 100 words or less, and it can be about your own experience of mental health problems and your journey to recovery, a message about how someone else's experience affected you, or a plea for others to start talking openly and honestly about mental health problems.

If you or someone you know would like to help, email Mark Byrne at or give us a call on 01 860 1620.
