An exhibition which walks viewers through the reality of domestic abuse takes place in St Mary’s Church Athlone over the May bank holiday weekend.

‘Souls of our Shoes – A journey into and out of Domestic Abuse’ will be on display from April 28th to May 1st.

This incredibly powerful and compelling exhibition highlights issues around Gender–based Violence. It is an initiative of Mothers’ Union and its main purpose is to raise awareness of domestic violence.

“Souls of Our Shoes” is an exhibition of physical shoes accompanied by comments from those who have walked away from abuse.

The exhibition is to be launched on Friday evening at 8pm followed by open hours on Saturday Sunday & Monday (see poster for details)

Individuals and groups are welcome to drop in during this time to view the exhibition and stand in solidarity with all who experience domestic abuse.
