Our Lives Our Futures
Nasc have an exciting new project 'Our Lives Our Futures' beginning in January 2021. We want to raise awareness of the barriers for young people who can't access education because of their immigration status. We want you to lead the fight for change.
Join us for a series of short webinars starting January 2021. You'll have the opportunity to talk with young activists in Ireland, learn how to run a campaign as well as work with professional filmmakers on your digital media and film-making skills all culminating in a series of campaigning videos to be released mid-2021.
We are delighted to be joined by two fantastic guests, Mamobo Orogo of Gorm Media and Councillor Uruemu Adejinmi who will speak about their experiences.
Mamobo Ogoro is a social psychology PhD candidate and social entrepreneur. Fueled by both her personal experience as an Afro-Irish person growing up in Ireland and her previous work on prejudice, racism and dual cultural identity, Mamobo’s research highlights the media and social representations of multicultural people in Ireland. As the founder Gorm Media, an online digital platform that curates common ground, Mamobo is on a mission to unify different cultural communities through curiosity, conversations that matter and creative pursuits.
