Blood and Belonging 

Raine Geoghegan, Richard O’Neill and Damian Le Bas: three different writers from a variety of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller (GRT) backgrounds come together for a reading and discussion hosted by Louise Doughty. Blood and Belonging is the title of Louise’s guest edition of writing magazine Writers Mosaic

Raine, Richard and Damian will speak about the importance of their GRT ancestry to explore questions such as “How does a blood lineage give you a sense of belonging?” “Is there such thing as a GRT community when so much of it is so diverse?”
Join this discussion and celebration of what we have in common.
