Event information

A network of Irish and Northern Irish artists and creatives, cultural providers and commissioners, collaborating for better representation.

As part of the 2020 Liverpool Irish Festival, a Cultural Connectedness Exchange was held to introduce Irish and Northern Irish artists to Irish and Northern Irish cultural commissioners and providers (mainly in England), to determine

  • the needs of Irish and Northern Irish artists (particularly those working in England or with England-based organisations)
  • barriers they were facing post-Brexit and during Covid-19
  • how cultural providers/commissioners could provide value/service in relation to Covid-19/Brexit.

This is the second meeting of the group, which hopes to approve a white paper on the role and remit of the group, set up next steps and pass on a list of advocacy points and issues for Irish In Britain to take to the All-Party Parliamentary group they attend. You can see that paper, here.

We intend for this to become a valuable network to any Irish or Northern Irish artist wanting to work in public art delivery as well as to cultural providers and commissioners who focus -or could focus- on Irish and Northern Irish work. This is only the second meeting of the network and we welcome new additions. If you need any further information, please contact the Liverpool Irish Festival Director, Emma Smith, on [email protected]
