This event is the second in a pair of conversations book-ending the Tar Isteach Commission. The first Roundtable took place last October 2019 at IMMA as a closed research and knowledge gathering event. This reconvened Roundtable will be a public facing event via Zoom that aims to share and disseminate insights and learning from the Tar Isteach project which engaged with ‘New Irish’ residents and citizens in Salthill, Galway City, Lisdoonvarna Co. Clare and Ballaghaderreen, Co. Roscommon through via a series of encounters, meetings and workshops.
As the project reaches its conclusion, the artists now wish to revisit their original questions, informed by the research of their practice.
– Who speaks? Who gains? Who has leverage?
