Curated by another friend from the office, Jan Carson and EastSide Arts present ‘Prophets, Makers and Risk Takers’, a free live stream showcase of writing from Northern Ireland on 14 January 2021. This brings together leading voices in writing from NI to discuss how writers are approaching global issues and themes; revisiting ideas associated with the history and politics of N.I. but finding new ways to tell the stories; what opportunities exist outside N.I. and how best work can be promoted internationally; and showing what makes writing from Northern Ireland so distinctive. The event also features Susan McKay, Damian Smyth and Dr Dawn Miranda Sherratt-Bado who has also joined us in the Brussels office to present her book Female Lines.
