Éireann and I

Dreaming Still

The Douglas Hyde is delighted to launch Dreaming Still, a publication curated and edited by Éireann and I with contributions by Rere Ukponu, Diana Bamimeke, Seán Gallen, Daranijoh Sanni, Rosa McGovern  and Ikenna Anyabuike.

Dreaming Still is a collection of images and texts from Black-Irish writers. The writers each offer a personal photograph that encapsulates the feelings of displacement endured by migrants. Each photo is mirrored by a speculative text which blends nostalgia and futurism, and sets an alternative reality in motion for their subjects, one where wonder and pleasure are prioritised.

The launch will be hosted by Éireann and I, including readings from some of the contributors and a discussion with community organisers, Tino Wekare and Blezzing Dada.

All are welcome and there is no booking required.

Dreaming Still was commissioned and is supported by The Douglas Hyde. Edited by Éireann & I, an artist-led repository and Black migrant memory project created by Beulah Ezeugo and Joselle Ntumba.

The use of face mask is recommended for this event. Face masks will be provided at our front desk.
