Workshop 1 Craft Room Belfast Book Festival


SAME/Difference - Exhibition

Creative writing and photography project devised by Quotidian artists

Located in The Crescent's Cafe throughout the Festival

SAME/Difference is a creative writing and photography project devised by Quotidian artists Maria McManus, Viviana Fiorentino, Nandi Jola and Bernarde Lynn.

The exhibition photographs share the participant's concepts of identity, belonging, home, diversity and peace-building, through creative writing and expressive abilities. It explores the lived – experience of migration and home-making and includes people from minority ethnic groups whose first language is other than English.

Quotidian's experienced team of artists supported the groups to make creative inquiry of both the challenges and enriching perspective of life in a ‘new ground’ and the lived experience of ‘home’

Programmes were undertaken in Portadown (supported by Peace IV), Newtownards (supported by Good Relations/ TBUC Ards & North Down) and online across Northern Ireland (supported by CRCNI & NI Refugee Resettlement Programme).
