  • The Other Podcast
    The Other Podcast is the first in a series of initiatives aimed at empowering women in the creative industries. Through the manifestation of talks, events, workshops and a podcast we intend to equip women with the skills needed to advance in their careers. The first podcast will be recorded live to commemorate one month since the Irish public voted to repeal the Eight Amendment.  This is not another talk series; this is an opportunity for us to position ourselves as equals in this industry.
