#IamIrish - Exhibition Reception
Friday, 07 December 2018 18:00 - 21:00
"For mixed race Irish people in reality our ancestry, our roots, our blood are Irish and we are proud of it."
All are welcome to the #IamIrish Exhibition Reception taking place on Friday 07 December at 6pm.
#IamIrish is a celebration of diversity, and in collaboration with the Galway Anti Racism Network it is making its debut in Galway with this impressive creative experience brought together in the Galway Arts Centre in Galway's West End. Inspired by a persisting lack of representation of the Black Irish experience, Lorraine Maher launched the project #IAmIrish to celebrate mixed race Irish people and to question the concept of ‘Irishness’ and what an authentic Irish identity means for Irish communities today. The exhibition runs from Tuesday 04 December to Friday 14 December. There will be a Panel Discussion on Thursday 13 December.
