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. This event reintroduces one specific collection of experiences, from the HIV/AIDS separation unit in Dublin’s largest prison, and situates them in the wider context of HIV/AIDS and prisons in the 1980s.

Captured through oral histories, these stories are being transformed into a podcast: come and hear some of this, and discuss this history and the process of retelling it with the creative team.
