We are the map

Mother Tongues and Rua Red are offering a series of free art workshops where groups and individuals can meet up, view the exhibitions and discuss the themes within the work. The workshops will explore how art can give us a better understanding of ourselves and the world we live in and will explore the themes of the work currently on display in Rua Red, The Map, a collaboration by Alice Maher and Rachel Fallon, and We Are the Map, text and sound installation by Sinéad Gleeson and Stephen Shannon.

See Through Café

The See Through Café is a free and open space where we allow to flourish conversations about art and diversity in and across Ireland, through the eyes of Artists and art enthusiasts. The See Through Café project is curated by members of the WeareGriot Collective: Dagogo Hart, Felispeaks and Samuel Yakura. It is presented in collaboration with Rua Red and supported by Creative Ireland South Dublin and South Dublin County Arts Office.

Mother Tongues Festival is one of Ireland’s most diverse and dynamic initiatives.
Our goal is to create a space that fosters belonging and celebrates linguistic and cultural identities through education and the arts and so far we have been able to engage more than 1,000 children and 100 artists in our programmes.
The next 12 months are key for us to deliver our programmes. We need your help to welcome communities to create, enjoy and share culture and creativity. We want to nurture the next generation of artists. We want to continue to come together through creativity. We want to provide some joy to help us through feelings of isolation and loss and to make migrant families feel at home in Ireland.
