ARD Family Resource Centre in association with Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture presents Our Words, One Voice.
Local community organisation ARD Family Resource Centre have been busy in recent months despite the challenges presented by the ongoing lockdown. Working with spoken word artist Kelvin Akpaloo and film maker Mia Mullarkey the group have collaborated with a group of local young people to provide a creative outlet for issues they feel passionate about.
Our Words, One Voice provides a platform for these young voices to express their opinions and aspirations on issues such as climate change, discrimination, isolation, self-acceptance and mental wellbeing of young people.
Continuing during April the Our Words, Once Voice project will create a collective spoken word piece that will be filmed and premiered at the EYE on the Edge festival on Saturday 24 April.
