Our projects in the arts and cultural sector promote diverse and collaborative art practices that enrich our world, challenge our thinking and contribute to the community and cultural development and increased participation.
We create multilingual and transcultural experiences that bring people together to celebrate our individuality, respect difference, and learn from one another.
The Mother Tongues Festival is the largest festival celebrating linguistic diversity through the arts in Ireland. Our mission is to showcase Ireland’s rich artistic and cultural tapestry through the use of the multiple languages spoken in the country and to enable people to connect while engaging in diverse creative experiences. The festival shows that multilingualism is not a barrier, but a reason to get together and celebrate.
The See Through Café is a free and open space where we allow to flourish conversations about art and diversity in and across Ireland, through the eyes of Artists and art enthusiasts. In 2021, the project is curated by members of the WeareGriot Collective: Dagogo Hart, Felispeaks and Samuel Yakura. It is presented in collaboration with Rua Red and supported by Creative Ireland South Dublin and South Dublin County Arts Office.
The Interactive Museum of Languages for Young Audiences (IMLYA) is a touring interactive exhibition for primary school children. By offering schools the opportunity to experience the exhibition on their grounds and availing of educational activities, the exhibition enables teachers to help young people learn and apply creative skills and capacities.
As part of Social Inclusion Week in South Dublin County Council we ran a virtual series of Yoruba bed-time stories with artist Zeenie Summers.
The three stories are available on our YouTube channel for everyone to enjoy any time!
