The Sailor and The Oar

E-mail Print

Many thanks to everyone who performed, attended and supported our event, The Sailor and The Oar, on the Belfast Barge.  It was a wonderful night of poems, stories and song offered in the round.  The evening also raised funds for a new development project, Powerlines, which will explore social and political power systems.

There was a sailor whose life was the sea.
He understood the tides and currents and his muscles were accustomed to the pull on the sail ropes and the heft of the oars.
Then, one day, he stood on the shore with his back to the sea.  He lifted an oar and slung it over his shoulder, and he headed in-land.  He continued to journey until the day on which someone hailed him and said ‘whatever is that thing you have on your shoulder?’ and he knew he had travelled far enough.

The Journey - Short Film

E-mail Print

Mediation Northern Ireland, in partnership with The MAC worked with women from Africa, South America and the Caribbean on The Journey, an exploration of the women's journeys to Northern Ireland through visual art and poetry.

A short film was recorded during the project. 

Inspired by The MAC's exhibition of African-American artist Kara Walker, the group has created silhouette imagery which reflects their sense of their own identities and produces short poems on the often traumatic events which brought them Belfast. Facilitated by artist Charlotte Bosanquet and Mary McAnulty from Mediation NI the work speaks not only of the hardships endured but also of courage, hope and new beginnings.
