Kerry County Council Dancer in Residence Catherine Young and The Welcoming Project will present this new dance film online on the Catherine Young Dance Facebook page to celebrate Culture Night.

The film, choreographed by Eilise Sullivan and scored by Music Director Martin Scharer, is inspired by the African proverb "It Takes a Village", which stresses the importance of us coming together to support one another; something we all can relate to, given the past year. Since 2016, The Welcoming Project has been welcoming newcomers to Ireland (over 50% of those involved with the project have been in Direct Provision) by bringing people together, physically and culturally, through music and dance and focusing on what we share. This film captures the essence and beauty of this community in Kerry, sharing their talents and thoughts and stressing the importance of coming together to be hopeful and resilient in darker times…as one family, together.
