The Herstory Light Festival marked St. Brigid's weekend with a stunning series of illuminations projected onto public buildings around the country, amongst them The G.P.O., National Library, National Museum, Belfast City Hall, Ulster Museum, Titanic Museum and EPIC Museum.
Herstory, is a movement which seeks to tell the stories of modern, mythic and historic women, and the 2020 Herstory Light Festival aims to shine a light, both literally and metaphorically on these oft- unsung women.
