Inspired by a persisting lack of representation of the Black Irish experience, Lorraine Maher began a journey to uncover and celebrate a more diverse representation of Irish identity, questioning the notions of ‘Irishness’ and what that means for Irish communities today. Since its birth, the project has attracted huge interest capturing the imagination of people in the UK, Ireland and internationally. It has sparked creative conversations and connections far beyond the project and the Black Irish experience. #IamIrish is growing to become a international creative movement which explores perceptions of Colour, Culture, Identity and Heritage and embraces the collective mixed-race experience of Irish heritage in all its diversity.
