Published by the 2013 graduates of the BA Photography course at Dublin Institute of Technology, this zine documents the work of Kasia Kaminska. Kasia Kaminska’s work, Ón Bhonn Aníos / From The Bottom Up, engages with the history of the Gaeltacht Civil Rights Movement. The movement was established in order to give a voice to an under-served, under-represented Gaeltacht community. The broadcast industries that came about as a result of the movement continue to give a voice to these still under-recognised communities and their past and present day struggles. Tracing the history of the movement and documenting the sites of broadcast that came as a result, this project reveals the significance of this history and industry to the people of the Connemara Gaeltacht and highlights the importance of retaining cultural ownership and awareness during times where there is little else a community can lay claim to.
