In Autumn 2009, as a direct result of being part of the residency on the Art@Work Programme, I was interested in developing the relational, collaborative and socially engaged elements of my practice further. I approached Clare Women's Network in Ennis, to begin discussions on how I could work with this grass roots organisation as a visual artist. I was invited to collaboratively create a series of images for the 2009 16 Days Campaign against gender-based violence. The aim was to create a series of collaborative images, addressing different aspects of this problem, from physical battery to financial, psychological and sexual abuse, to raise public awareness. Two series of images were created, one for the gallery context and a second for a public campaign with visual and PR materials. The resulting tableaux images were responses to stories in the media at that time, statistical information provided by Women's Aid Ireland, and interviews with participants. A series of 16 images were created and launched at the Balulacht conference, Violence Against Women, held at Thomond Park, Limerick on Nov 26th 2009, and then released into public spaces through both analogue and digital platforms throughout the 16 days of the campaign in 2009, and also in 2010. Selected images from the series were shown as part of a solo show  The Outside Is Inside, at The Courthouse Gallery Ennistymon in 2010. This show also included the piece World Gone Crazy , a subversion of all articles relating to gender based violence, published in three of the national and regional newspapers, over a 16 day period in July 2010.
