The Irish World Music Cafe

The HRI PART-IM research cluster is delighted to announce that the Irish World Music Café is back live in the UL City Campus. The café was created in 2015 in Limerick, in the context of the Irish Refugee Protection Programme. The Café hosts music-based social gatherings which aim to create spaces of hospitality with new migrants in Ireland. Since 2019, cluster PI Prof. Helen Phelan has been working closely with Prof. Anne MacFarlane in integrating the Café model into migrant health research initiatives. In 2020, the café moved online and cluster member Dr Hala Jaber coordinates a vibrant cafe facebook page. From 26 September 2022 onwards, the café will meet on a weekly basis on Mondays, 11.30-1pm in the city campus, coordinated by cluster member Ewa Zak-Dyndal, in association with our community partner, Doras, represented by Ahmed Hassan and Serhii Korobstov.
