I started working for Front Line Defenders almost exactly two years ago. It was my first job after finishing my Master's at the Irish Centre for Human Rights. On Wednesday 4 November, I gave the cultural presentation at the 8th Dublin Platform for human rights defenders at risk. It was a privilege for me to join this amazing event in such a capacity.
I performed four traditional Irish songs and spoke about the role of the human rights defenders at storytellers. Now we must listen as they pass on their story during this global human rights event.
On Monday 9 November 2015, Nova Collective will perform on BBC 2 NI. As part of "I Lár an Aonaigh", an Irish-language magazine show, I spoke to Lynette Faye (as Gaeilge) and sang a couple of songs with Nova Collective. You can watch "The Girl from Ipanema" by clicking the image below.
Tune in at 10pm this Monday to see us perform an original song, "We can love this way".
