passports – a conversation with Ayesha Syeddah & Friends

Show Time: 15:00 | 120mins

passport (noun) ˈpas-ˌpȯrt

an official document issued by a government, certifying the holder’s identity and citizenship and entitling them to travel under its protection to and from foreign countries.

What does your passport mean to you? 

Ayesha leads a curated line-up of speakers to create conversation on themes of belonging, migration and displacement. Using the social construct of a passport as the compass, they will share experiences, observations and thoughts on how our passports, or lack thereof, have shaped our journeys, identities and ideas of home. 

An interactive and experimental social exercise, the experience aims to (re)build and (re)define what it means to be Irish today by harnessing the power of dialogue.

Format: 90 minutes of conversation & performances followed by a 30 minute Q&A
