An installation of a typical family room in Direct Provision by Doras Luimní a number of years ago
Galway Anti Racism Network writes:
As a part of Culture Night [this Friday, from 6pm to 9pm], GARN and MASI (Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland) are asking people to experience the restricted space of a room in direct provision.
The dimensions of a room in a direct provision centre will be mapped out on the ground in Eyre Square to give some idea as to the space in which people are forced to live while awaiting their application to be decided.
There will be statements from people in direct provision available for people to read as well as pictures of other centres around Ireland. A stall will be close by for further information.
