THE SANCTUARY PROJECT (2020)
Written by Kirsty Murphy, Maia Purdue, Alicia Byrne Keane, Kiah Ronaldson, Marcus Bateson, Ultan Pringle, and Sarah O’Sullivan
‘The Sanctuary Project’ was an online creative writing series created by seven upcoming and established Irish writers in response to the theme of Sanctuary. The prompt given to each creative, was to pen a brief reflection on how we find Sanctuary and what it means to each of us during the Covid-19 pandemic. This pandemic has been incredibly challenging for artists and these reflections hopefully act as a small resistance to the current closure of theatres and museums. Each of these was posted on the Mac Tíre Instagram page in June, 2020.
