The Big Sing: A Shared Celebration
Sunday 9th June 2019
3:00pm - Main Stage
This event celebrates the 'Song Seeking' project, an intergenerational singing initiative within Direct Provision Centres funded through Creative Ireland. The celebration will include a new choral commission from Sean Doherty, group singing workshops and performances
Song Seeking started as a group singing research project funded by Creative Ireland under the National Creativity Fund. The project has involved a cross-agency collaboration between Mary Immaculate College (MIC) with Ailbhe Kenny, Sing Ireland (SI) and the Irish Refugee Council. Across six direct provision (DP) centres, the project involves intergenerational group singing workshops, shared ‘SingIn’ days with local choirs and a new choral commission, to be performed at the National Concert Hall.
