Border Stories

Shimna College, Newcastle, Co. Down

Border Stories is a powerful 90 minute coming together of poetry, song and spoken word on the themes of immigration and homelessness - stories that cross borders physically and emotionally.

Supported by the European Union's PEACE IV programme, this free event combines The Emigrant Woman's Tale (poetry written by Hungarian born writer Csilla Toldy, songs by Fil Campbell) and Bananas! performed by Belfast actress Vicky Blades - finishing with a discussion chaired by award winning journalist William Graham.
