Black Irish Contemporary Cultural Production & Social Processes Symposium

In Person

Coinciding with the multiplatform project FAMILY LINES by artist Dr Alice Rekab, The Douglas Hyde will present a public Symposium titled Black Irish Contemporary Cultural Production and Social Processes. The FAMILY LINES Project examines legacies of migration within Black and mixed-race culture in Ireland, in particular strategies of survival within the family unit. It asks the questions of who belongs, how we come to belong and who is excluded? At a time when questions of race, place and belonging are central to both cultural and political progress, the Symposium aims to raise awareness on equality issues and celebrate diversity by exploring these themes with a focus on the multiple avenues of Black Irish Cultural production as a site of memory, heritage, homage and legacy.
