St. Patrick’s Festival welcomes this opportunity to continue the dialogue of the #IAmIrish Project. The project initiated by Lorraine Maher in conjunction with the London Irish Centre, addresses the diversity of Irish identity and how we can challenge perceptions of what it looks like to be Irish.
Jim Carroll of Banter and more recently RTE, will host a panel of speakers who will share their stories and experiences of what is or was like growing up in Ireland, the diversity of Irish identity today and what the future might look like for people of mixed Irish heritage. This event will challenge perspectives through storytelling, discussion and performance.
Panelists will include Lorraine Maher of #IAMIRISH, spoken word artist Felicia Olusanya and direct provision campaigner Ellie Kisyombe, historian and academic Mike Cronin plus more tba.
A sister Ireland in Full Colour event took place in London on Friday 16th March with our collaborators the London Irish Centre on featuring Lorraine Maher and hosted by Jim Carroll.
