In this session we talk to artists, Leia Mocan, Zahra Khan and Imogen-Blue Hinojosa about roots, religion and their work. Plus an introduction with Maureen Kennelly, Director of the Arts Council of Ireland.
The voices of migrants, the main agents of cultural diversity and collaboration, are rarely heard and in these challenging times there is a danger that they will be completely marginalised. Hence, the focus of this year’s New Voices Series – Against the Odds 2: Open Studios is on visibility and dialogue.
The aim of the New Voices of Ireland Series is to present migrant artists to the wider online community, to let them tell about their artistic practices, their new and previous works, their plans and about themselves, their lives in Ireland and their artistic and personal roots.
