Black Irish Contemporary Cultural Production and Social Processes Symposium
Friday, 23 September 2022, 10am – 2pm
A one day public symposium coinciding with the multiplatform project FAMILY LINES by artist Alice Rekab, organised by The Douglas Hyde Gallery in collaboration with the School of Sociology (Black Studies Programme) in association with Trinity Long Room Hub.
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. It also aims to explore social processes involved in the generation and circulation of cultural forms, practices, values, and shared understandings.
