Mark O'Brien, Facing Change
26th April 2019

Mark O'Brien

This short film features Mark O'Brien from Tralee, Co. Kerry who shares his story about his journey to move from institutional living to his own home at the heart of the local community.

In 2019 Genio launched the exhibition, ‘Facing Change’, capturing the real-life changes experienced by those who have been supported by projects funded through the Government of Ireland and Genio over the past decade. The exhibition features 10 portraits and 10 short films of inspiring people from the four corners of Ireland, from a variety of backgrounds and across ages and genders. They have all been supported to overcome personal challenges related to mental health, disability, homelessness and dementia and to have more control over their own lives and live in the community. The portraits were taken by Ruth Medjber whose work has been exhibited extensively in Ireland as well as internationally. The short films were produced by Sam Whelan-Curtin and Fiona Murphy.
