As part of a series of events to mark International Day Against Racism 2021 The Melting Pot Luck and Visionation present Stand In My Shoes.
Stand In My Shoes is a project that presents 3 short films seeking shine a light on 3 common themes and experiences for ethnic minorities living in Ireland:
- The difficulties in getting accommodation when you are not Irish
- Constantly being asked to change or shorten your name. Or worse, being told your name is “too difficult”
- And finally, the consistent and never-changing question – Where are you ACTUALLY from?
These 3 short films by The Meting Pot Luck and Visionation and produced by Lakshika Films will take us on a journey into the lives of ethnic minorities in Ireland providing a unique insight into issues of prejudice, racism and microaggressions that are an everyday experience for so many.
The Melting Pot Luck is a volunteer-run, non-profit community group of refugees, asylum seekers and Galway locals who host events and projects focused on solidarity and cultural exchange.
Visionation is a drama group based in Galway city, creating and performing theatre based on the actors experiences of living in Direct Provision.
