"A different langugae is a different
vision of life."- Fredrico Fellini
We spent an afternoon (Oct 3rd, 2020) with six Cork-based writers and performers
who shared a piece of prose or poetry in a different language.
Sit back and soak in the sounds of Portuguese, German, Italian,
French and As Gaeilge. We also hope you find
comfort in their reflections about family, culture and belonging.
We created this event in 2018 and this broadcast is the first of 2020.
