I AM FROM REYKJAVIK: Sonia Hughes Residency

Dates: 24 Apr - 27 Apr


Research Project By Sonia Hughes

As part of her research into becoming a bona fide post-racial, global citizen Sonia Hughes wants to find out what it would be like if she was from Dublin. She wants to meet individuals a little like her from the city who can show her how her life could be.

If you match just one of the following criteria get in touch: Someone who has been married for 4 years; someone who loves cooking; someone who is or has been a single parent to a single child; someone whose parent has dementia; someone who used to be a political activist; someone who has been an artist for 20 years; someone who is a child of an immigrant; someone who is fat; someone who has a group of female friends who have known each other for over 20 years; someone who is Black.

There’s  nothing to it, just meet, show Sonia  a place that you think is relevant to your life here, she’ll buy you a cup of tea and you’ll have a chat. Get in touch.

Details of how to meet Sonia Hughes during her residency are available on Live Collision website
