Positive in Prison: HIV Stories from a Dublin Jail
London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
Series: A Sense of Belongings
Wednesday 22 November
London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London
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. Captured through oral histories, these stories are being transformed into an audio drama. Come and hear the drama, and discuss this history and the
process of retelling it with the creative team.
