Journeys First Fortnight 10th January 2020 Dublin Event

Dublin North, North East Recovery College, in conjunction with Akidwa, Cairdre, DCU, Pavee Point and Silver Thread, “Journeys – What I Know Now”. A morning of transcultural events, understanding and integration of wellbeing.

Our journey will commence with the launch our publication of selected stories and poems. ’’What I Know Now”, written by students of the Dublin North, North East Recovery College and facilitated by Silver Thread.

Hitting high notes, we will launch the “Song Creation Collective”- debut single C.D with original music, written and performed by students of Dublin North, North East Recovery College.

We then move to a Transcultural Dialogue panel where we will discuss about migration, culture, communities and mental health.

Next is a video performance entitled “YANA – You are not alone” from AKidwa, followed by Chris O’Donnell performing a song written to reflect the transition to homelessness, and is expressed through a poetic medium to show how it felt to fall into that category.

You can then choose to one workshop or exhibition space-

The River of life – Akidwa,

Grub Box, Pavee Point,

Poetry Workshop – Silver Thread

Storycase of how migrants’ life journeys translate into design, fashion arts and crafts – Cairdre.

After an informative and fascinating morning, we will join together again for a final session of music and dance celebrating our transcultural recovery journey.

This event will be for three hours 10.00 – 1.00, registration from 9.15.
