If you had never seen an airplane before, you would probably think it was impossible to fly. If you’ve never heard of women who were historically significant, would you believe you could become one?
Women on the Walls and Women of the Rising are two projects from the Royal Irish Academy. Both are about acknowledging women’s contributions to Irish society, and, most importantly, making them visible.
We hoped that by wrapping buses, by having large campaigns on shelters, so that when you were standing waiting for a bus you could just see these women… it was about creating the idea of role models.
