TU Dublin Conservatoire presents three Thursday talks by leading experts in the histories of Grangegorman. 'Stages of Memory' is supported by Grangegorman Histories.

As part of its Stages of Memory project, TU Dublin Conservatoire brings you a series of free, online talks exploring Grangegorman’s past as a site of mental healthcare, asylum and incarceration. Delivered by leading experts with years of experience researching the history of Grangegorman, the talks will address perspectives on the history of psychiatry at the site, the records in the Grangegorman archives, and responding to the stories and the records artistically.
