After a hugely successful launch season of our 'London Irish Lecture series' we're back this Autumn with our 5th special guest - Lorraine Maher! 

Through 2018/2019 this series will bring you a diverse and engaging mix of speakers to talk on areas of Irish social, cultural and creative interest.

More 'talks' than lectures, each event will offer the opportunity for engagement and interaction, and an evening of lively conversation and learning.

#IAmIrish

Inspired by a persistent lack of representation of the Black Irish experience, Lorraine 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. 

Since launching the Project at the London Irish Centre during Black History month 2016 the the movement has grown from strength to strength sparking many important conversations about what “Irish” sounds and looks like.

The project has attracted huge interest capturing the imagination of people in the UK, Ireland and internationally. It has sparked creative conversations and connections far beyond the project and the Black Irish experience.  

Come and join Lorraine to hear about what inspired her to create #IamIrish , her childhood growing up in Tipperary, her current work to celebrate the changing face of Ireland and get an insight into the highs and lows of her journey!

This event is support by Culture Ireland GB2018 Programme.
