The Institute of Irish Studies is delighted to co-host the Great Famine Voices Roadshow Liverpool with the Irish National Famine Museum at Strokestown Park and Irish Heritage Trust, supported by our partners Liverpool Irish Festival and the Liverpool Great Hunger Commemoration Committee.
Originally planned as a physical event bringing together Irish migrants, their descendants and multi-generational Irish communities the event is now in the process of being adapted for an online discussion concerning Ireland’s Great Famine and the migration it created. The discussion will take the form of curated online presentations and will be followed by a question and answer sessions open to the public via social media.
Registration will give you priority access to the concluding live Q&A session, depending on demand we may have to limit the live Q&A to preregistered participants only, but please note that the video presentations will be accessible to all for free and with no registration required.
