The series looks at the influence that the industrial dispute had on several different artistic disciplines from Literature and Song to Poetry, Drama and History.
It explores both well known texts such as James Plunketts “Strumpet City” to contemporary art pieces created by community groups in response to the 100year commemoration of the Lockout.
