On Sunday, February 4 from 2-4pm Salon Du Chat Repeal the 8th, a conversation will take place in Ormston House as part of a series of Repeal events hosted by Repeal LK. Salon du Chat is a Limerick based arts conversation, that aims to add a touch of theatre and the surreal to the art of conversation.
Salon du Chat is a pop-up conversation cafe where audiences choose topics of conversation from a menu presented by the Salon team. Friends and strangers are given a coffee or tea, Rice Krispie buns, and space and time to get stuck into some real conversations.
Salon du Chat is regularly programmed at festivals around Ireland including Electric Picnic, Body & Soul, Limerick Spring, and Culture & Chips, with different menus of conversations created for each event. The Salon du Chat team have put together a special menu around the topic of repealing the 8th Amendment, including quotes from the Citizens Assembly, personal stories from people who have experienced the 8th Amendment and a series of topics around women’s rights and bodily autonomy.
People interested in discussing repealing the 8th Amendment are invited to drop into Ormston House, Patrick Street any time between 2 pm and 4 pm on Sunday 4th February. Salon du Chat encourages people to talk and listen to each other. All opinions and points of view are welcome and respected. This is a free event.
