Landspeak – A gathering of Indigenous and Irish Voices, an online event which we are organising in partnership with Ireland Canada University Foundation, and the Centre for Creative Writing and Oral Culture in the University of Manitoba.
Running from 17th-20th March, Landspeak is a series of free online talks, workshops, events, and activities, which seeks to build connections, opportunities and friendship between Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island in Canada, and people of Ireland.
Landspeak brings together artists, academics and leaders for explorations in culture, sport, creativity, language, and the environment. We hope you will be inspired by the lineup of participants, which includes Manchán Magan, Pura Fé, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, Jeanette Armstrong, Oein DeBhairduin, Louise Halfe, Nuala Hayes, Kontiwennenhawi — Akwesasne Women Singers, Cheryl L’Hirondelle, Richard Van Camp and Liam Ó Maonlaí, with more still to be confirmed.
All events are free to attend. More information including how to register can be found on the Landspeak website here
