‘A Garden of Hope’ by Marie Keating Foundation

The Marie Keating Foundation and Roche’s Garden of Hope

The Marie Keating Foundation has teamed up with Roche to unveil their very own garden at the festival, dedicated to women who have survived breast cancer.

The ‘Out the Other Side: A Garden Of Hope’ exhibit aims to shine a light on cancer survivorship and the many stages women experience after diagnosis.

The Garden of Hope for Cancer Survivors

The stand out features of the garden designed to inspire hope were a Pink Bench as well as a specially created Bra Hammock:

  • The Bra Hammock, designed and created as part of a collaborative project between The National College of Art and Design and The Rediscovery Centre, has been repurposed from bras donated by women all over Ireland as part of the Marie Keating Foundation and Roche’s ‘Give Your Bra for Breast Cancer’ campaign
  • A Pink Bench and Ribbon weave throughout the garden, representing the journey from diagnosis to recovery. On the back wall of the garden, quotes from the ten women featured in the Out the Other Side photographic exhibition were used.
