When: Wednesday 13 April at 7pm
Where: Online via Zoom
The story of Henrietta Street is the story not only of architectural and political history, but the arts. When campaigner Uinseann MacEoin saved a number of Henrietta Street homes in the 1960s and '70s, it began a process of revitalisation that drew artists to the street. Mick O'Dea, past president of the Royal Hibernian Academy, was one such artist. In this Teatime Talk he will reflect on the street and show work inspired by it.
