Celebrating Diversity – Thanks!

Thanks to everyone who made Love Poetry Hate Racism 2008 in Northern Ireland such a success over the weekend.

Over 250 people attended the events in Derry and Belfast (that is well up on last year’s attendance) and this along with the events all over the globe made the weekend a real success.

The highlight performances – El Crisis at the Guildhall in Derry on Monday, Seamas Fox and Raven on Saturday night in Belfast, Moyra Donaldson and Martin Mooney on Friday night in Belfast.

Also our musical guests Rea Curran in Derry and The Motion Project and Thomas Muinzer in Belfast.

Special mentions to Catherine Brogan and Ezekial Johnson for their performances.

The newly established organisation di-Verse which runs LPHR will be holding its next poetry event on June 4th.
