Canopy is our long-running, research-led and multi-strand exploration of adoption narratives across the world. Canopy uses the idea of a ‘national family home’, to create a global map of the ways in which adoption moves people, money and national values around the world, and how this can be embodied in architecture. 

An Englishman’s Home is His Castle, But We Are Not English Men invites the wider public into the research process for the first time, with a day of participatory workshops, presentations and art, hosted by a panel of local academics, artists researchers and designers including Dr Claire McGettrick born Lorraine Hughes (co-founder of Justice for Magdalenes Research and Adoption Rights Alliance), Louise Lowe (co-founder of Anu productions) and Claire Healy (Academic and Narrative Environments Designer).

Join us on Thursday 11th July, from 11am until 4pm

Axis Ballymun, Dublin 9

Pay what you can (Suggested donation of 10€), free refreshments available
