Women in Politics & Public Life 1918 - 2019
Emotion Media had the privilege to work on a ‘pop-up’ museum from the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht curated by historian Sinéad McCoole. We had the honour to be a part of the design & build and were commissioned to create a range of print and digital content which ran in the in the
Coach House at Dublin Castle.
We project managed, designed and developed all the visual media; from interior wall panels, print items and video production to touch screen technology.
We worked alongside some very talented people who worked to tight deadlines to help bring the history of these wonderful women to light.
Minister for Culture
It was launched on December 14th by the Minister for Culture, Josepha Madigan and ran until February 3rd in the Coach House in Dublin Castle. It begins it’s tour of Ireland at it’s next Launch night in Istabraq Hall in Limerick County Council on March 8th, International Women’s Day.
It will tour Ireland until December 2019.
It documents the personal and political lives of the women who have helped shape our state over the last 100 years.
Original Cabinet Table
The instalment of the Museum at the Coach House had the original Cabinet Table with 19 seats placed around it. Each seat had a touch tablet placed in front it which defaulted to the biography of one Cabinet Member per place setting, representing the 19 Women who have been elected as cabinet members over the last 100 years. A visitor could sit at this historic table and browse through each of the biographies. The content we created especially for the tablets has now been remastered to work with one large touch screen at the Limerick exhibition as space did not allow for the original cabinet table to travel with the exhibition.
The other content we created was used on printed panels, digital screens and interactive touch screens incorporating a combination of video, motion graphics & music.
