The ‘People Like Us’ Portrait Project:

We asked people who were working with our Assertive Case Management Team, in North East Inner City Dublin, if they would like to share their story. The people who participated have quite different stories to tell, but all are very powerful in their own right.  Over a couple of days Peter Varga, of Humans of Dublin, met and interviewed the subjects and took their photographs.  As you will see Peter is very good at getting the best out of people. This is a wonderful community which is often tainted by negative stories in the press.  It is important to show the lived experience of some of the people from the area and this exhibition helps do that.

You can visit the exhibition at City Hall, Dame St, Dublin 2 – Between 14th to 18th January (inclusive) – The opening hours are 10am to 5.15pm.

We will be showing the exhibition at other locations – so watch this space for more information!
