#Unveiled - Unveiled Horizons/Horizons dévoilés is an artistic transmedia interactive experience that is part of the Cork Harbour Festival (3-11 June), the Cork Midsummer Festival and in partnership with the French Embassy in Ireland.

The outdoor installation which is free is sited on the city’s Custom House Quay. This Friday, 9 June, at this quay is expected a visit of the square-rigger Pelican of London.

The artistic concept develops the relation between art, digital media and social issue through an application, a participatory website and an outdoor installation questioning women’s horizons in port city around the world.

This provocative and beautiful work by French photographer Carl Cordonnier and Jools Gilson from UCC Creative, focuses on the hidden presence of women in port towns and cities.

Through interviews and photography workshops, Unveiled Horizons collaborates with women from Cork on the composition of their portraits. 

To follow them in Cork where Carl and Jools met a group of inspiring women. Their Facebook page link is located on the French Embassy in Ireland website here.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
