Society in Ireland is seen as an equality safe zone for the genders. The Marriage bar is long gone, we have bodily autonomy, and we even have laws in place to protect our equality. Yet it is important to recognise that our equality was fought for. This project is a campaign for young teenagers in Ireland, with goals to educate and empower them. Allow them to learn how equality came to be in Ireland and who was part of it. Society in Ireland is still not perfect, and it is important for the youth to see areas that can still be improved on. Through knowledge comes power, through power comes change. Through educating the youth they can see examples of people who have taken matters into their own hands, and with this they can do the same.View website prototype
Everhouse was the solution to the challenge of making intergenerational connections with sustainability at the heart of the project. I focused on the elderly and immigrant communities within my local areas. Via skill and culture sharing between these two groups, the connection is to grow with a common goal in mind; learning and sustainability. With a garden, a market, a café and learning spaces, Everhouse aims to supply areas for the audience to have control over – whether it be gardening classes or music nights. An example of a circular economy, Everhouse also aims to be self-sustainable within a four phase model.
