A peer led group meeting every 2 weeks in the Comhlámh offices – for anyone who has lived or worked overseas and would like to join a group of people with similar experiences to write together.
We meet every second Tuesday and every week a different member of the group facilitates the session by bringing along two or three prompts that generate short writing sessions.
The group meets every two weeks.
‘The Not For Profit Sector, Donors and the Demobilisation Of Dissent’ is the topic up for discussion at the last of this season’s #FirstWeds events.
Comhlámh wants to open a space to critically reflect on the role of the not-for-profit sector in effectively challenging the political agenda and engaging with grassroots activism. Join us for what will surely be a lively discussion.
Linking in with the existing ‘ten x 9’ monthly storytelling events, the Comhlámh group have organised their own storytelling event, bringing together stories with a global justice and international dimension.
The theme of the event is ‘JOURNEY’ – come along to the Green Room in Black Box on May 11th at 19:30 to hear how the storytellers interpret this theme!
A BYOC (bring your own clothes) event in Cork city centre – a chance to recycle pre loved clothes and fall in love with some ‘new to you’ items of clothing.
