Community is at the heart of what we do at Black & Irish, and one of our core aims is to foster the Black and mixed race community within the larger Irish society. This community is open to all who identify as Black, African, Caribbean and Afro-Latinx living on the island of Ireland. It serves as a welcoming and open space for people to connect, share and get involved in decisions that affect the community.

Community Channel

We’ve built a new community membership channel as a way to ensure that we’re reaching and engaging with people within the community! If you are part of the community, join to:

  1. Bring your concerns by participating in forums and discussions relating to topics that affect the community 
  2. Accessing community initiatives and connecting with others within the community 
  3. Access to early-bird tickets to events, regular updates
