Talk Series: Incoming - Richard Mosse
In conjunction with the exhibition Incoming by Richard Mosse, Butler Gallery programmed a series of events that aims to bring us closer to the stories of people who have been forced to migrate or seek refugee status in Ireland. Migrants and refugees are often purely seen as a statistic in newspapers or on TV, however, behind each number is a person with a very personal set of circumstances. It is important that these people’s experiences are known and understood in order to raise awareness and compassion within wider Irish society.

Re:Collecting took place on Saturday 10th November 2012 when a group of like minded people with an interest in the heritage and history of Kilkenny came together for an afternoon and evening of exploration and recollection. Re:Collecting recorded a moment of pause and reflection at Evan’s Home, between past and future inhabitation following a period of collaboration between Butler Gallery and Commonage.
