Ireland has long been a land of immigration and emigration; of exile and return. Our oldest myths tell us that the Irish are the people who came from elsewhere. Repeatedly driven from their homes, only to return once again to struggle to reclaim their place.

In this workshop, students will experience the clash of cultures, coming together as different peoples, and will be offered a variety of approaches to see how best to live and work together as a new community. They will explore the conflicts, tensions, and benefits of a multicultural society, and will decide how they want to live up to the motto of the “land of a hundred thousand welcomes”.
