Through their images and voice recordings, they invite people to learn about their stories of hope.

Come along and engage with the photography exhibition over a morning coffee.

When: The official TU Dublin launch of Embrace Our Stories is on Monday, 20 November, at 11 AM, and you are invited! 

Where: Back Foyer, East Quad, Grangegorman Campus, TU Dublin, Lower Grangegorman Road, Dublin 7.

This event and exhibition are part of TU Dublin's College Awareness Week activities. The exhibition will be on display from 20 to 25 November 2023. 

Speakers include Kai Brosnan, EPIC Youth Council member.

Kai will reflect on developing the exhibition and the theme behind it, as well as his own experiences as a care-experienced student. Kai is in his third year of a Social Care degree on the University's Blanchardstown Campus. He has participated in a number of projects to raise awareness about the care system and advocacy work to make a better for future children and young people in care and with care experience.

One of the projects Kai led was creating resources for LGBTQI+ children and young people in care, and for the people who work with them.
