We make marks and scribe ourselves into our new forms, ever evolving and imprinting on one another.

Cúan Cusack will facilitate a mindful DIY fruit tattoo workshop. Stick and poke tattooing has been a long-standing practice at the fringes of queer life. Mark-making has often created space for reclaiming our fruity bodies. In this workshop LGBTQ+ people and friends will learn how to embed ink in the skin of fruits. Drawing on themes of joy and solidarity.

This workshop will encourage conversation about the queer joy and our futures. Fruit and materials will be provided. This is an over-18s workshop for all abilities and interests.


Cúan Cusack is a freelance illustrator and community organizer from Waterford. They graduated from NCAD in 2017. They are a member of the Trans Writers Union, Pride of the Déise, and Alien Nation, a queer artists collective.

Their praxis involves community organizing, illustration, design, and writing. Cúan is inspired by DIY queer culture and the natural world. Their work is a joyful display of community solidarity, self-acceptance and resistance to oppression.
