The Liquor Rooms will be collaborating with The Irish Times – New to the Parish series to discuss the work of immigrant artists. How have they been influenced and formed by their political environments? How does an artist’s cultural identity affect their work? What challenges have they encountered bringing their work into an Irish context? Journalist Sorcha Pollak will be interviewing a panel of artists and performers featured in New to the Parish who are from a variety of disciplines, from theatre to music to fine art.
New to the Parish is an Irish Times weekly series in which newcomers to Ireland talk about the joys and challenges of their new lives. Sorcha Pollak is the chief reporter for the New to the Parish series.
The Liquor Rooms is an award-winning cocktail bar and arts venue on Wellington Quay that runs a varied programme of cultural events and have previously collaborated with the Irish Times to celebrate the anniversary of New to the Parish.
