The Demeter Project - Still Life Still

The Demeter Project - Still Life Still was a performance that was the culmination of a six month project designed and managed by Prime Cut Productions with our Partners from Ardmonagh Family Centre, Ardoyne Women's Group, Dee Street Community Centre and Newhill Community Centre. Bringing together women from the North, East and West of the City aged between 14 and 17 and over 55 this project examines the contribution of women over the past century to the life of Belfast. As well as performances , funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund has enabled us to give the project a legacy, creating an online archive as well as a physical archive at the Linenhall Library, in Belfast. This has enabled us to preserve the all too often unheard stories of how Women have contributed to building the incredible city of Belfast that we live in today.
