Artists from Italy, South Africa, South Korea, Romania and France – who have made their home in Northern Ireland – will come together for a special showcase on International Migrants Day 2020.

The event is funded through the CR/CD Small Grants Scheme from the Community Relations Council.

Sky, You Are Too Big takes place online on Thursday 17 December at 7pm. 

 Organised by Quotidian - Word on the Street, Sky You Are Too Big is inspired by a poem about migration written by Viviana Fiorentino, an event participant who moved to Northern Ireland from Italy six years ago.

Viviana said: “Created by the United Nations in 1990, the theme of this year’s International Migrants Day is #WeTogether – we learn together, create together, work together, sing, dance and play together.”

The event features music, poetry, theatre, dance and visual art from a variety of international perspectives. The aim of 'Sky, You Are Too Big' is to reflect on the experience of migration and the enrichment of diversity in renewing and changing Northern Ireland.

 Artists participating in the online event include soul singer-songwriter Siobhan Brown, visual artist and printmaker Wilhelmina Peace, visual artist Frederic Huska, sound artist Una Lee, poet and playwright Nandi Jola, multi-disciplinary artist Dragos Musat and poet and activist Viviana Fiorentino.  'Sky, You Are Too Big' will be introduced by Maria McManus, Artistic Director/ Founder of Quotidian - Word On the Street.
