Positive in Prison: HIV stories from a Dublin jail

You are invited to join us for our launch events in London and Dublin:


22 November and 1 December 2017

The 1980s HIV/AIDS crisis may be recent history, but the experiences of those who lived through it are rapidly disappearing from the public mind. To reintroduce one specific collection of experiences, from the HIV/AIDS separation unit in Dublin’s largest prison, we’ve created a podcast based on oral histories and archival research, and you’re invited to join us for a roundtable and drinks reception to mark its launch. Come and hear extracts, and discuss this history and the process of retelling it with the creative team.
