SPOTLIGHT: Éire to the World is a film that brings Black Irish creatives and artists together in a way that hasn’t been seen before. Filmed over 3 days in December, with the support of Jam Park, the work showcases live performance, spoken word, dance, podcasts and fashion.
We want to highlight the communities’ talents, music, businesses and personalities in hopes of creating enough of a moment to inspire change.
SPOTLIGHT is a collaborative, creative and interactive project where our main focus is to highlight artists of Black heritage here in Ireland who deserve to be showcased.
SPOTLIGHT originally came about when Jafaris and Zeda the Architect wanted to do something to end 2020 with a bang and a purpose. A lot has happened this year and we wanted to do something to memorialise it, to find a way to give back to those in need and also to find a way to celebrate and showcase the many, many talents that we feel do not get their fair share of the spotlight here in Ireland.
PROJECT ARTS CENTRE is Ireland’s leading centre for the development and presentation of contemporary art, dedicated to protecting and nurturing the next generation of Irish artists across all forms of the performing and visual arts. Project Arts Centre is proud to be supported by the Arts Council and Dublin City Council.
