Éireann and I

Race, Place and Belonging

You’re invited to join us in examining what makes a family archive. Letters, photographs, diary entries, postcards, trinkets. The objects we inherit often reflect our own history and share the same narratives of movement and displacement as we do. How do the items we hold dear to us connect us to our lineage? What do they tell us about who we are and what we value?

This workshop is an invitation to think through how people with Black heritage form and familiarise themselves with their identities, what our possessions tell us about us, and the creative ways we can preserve them.

Taking place on the 2nd of April from 12 pm – 2 pm, this workshop is exclusively open to Black people and people with African heritage. Confirm your attendance by contact us at before the 1st April.
