'Rags, Riches & Recycling; the Dublin Society's encouragement of art & artefacts, 1731-1781’

Author and design historian Claudia Kinmonth is the recipient of the RDS Library & Archives Research Bursary 2018. Studying the Dublin Society’s earliest manuscripts, she explores new aspects of its support for Ireland’s poorest workers, including the women and their children. Her richly illustrated talk juxtaposes surviving objects with artworks, revealing how people painted, carved, wove, bartered and recycled their way out of poverty.
