Orla Egan will share her experiences in creating the Cork LGBT Digital Archive http://corklgbtarchive.com/. Orla is committed to developing a model for creating digital archives that is low-cost and doesn’t require a high level of technical skills and that is particularly useful for community digital archives. Orla will share this model with the workshop participants, explaining the tools and processes involved. Participants will then work on creating the Labrisz Digital Archive, adding some items with relevant metadata (information about the items) and creating some exhibits.

This film explores gender identity in Ireland. It focuses on two main questions: what is gender identity and where is it located in the individual (is it in the heart, is it in the body, is it in the soul?). Three Irish based transgender people, Lucy/Richard, Diane and Stephen, answer these questions from the position of their own gender journey experiences. Carol O Keeffe, an independent documentary filmmaker from Cork, will be present to answer questions following the screening.
