Shoulder to Shoulder: Integration Through The Arts.
In December 2011, students from three Limerick schools and members of migrant community group Doras Luimní collaborated on an intercultural, multimedia performance of Tom Swift's 'The X-Factory'. The play was adapted to include additional characters and incorporate eight short films.
This short video shows some highlights of the performance itself and of the film-making process.
This project is co-financed by the European Commission under the European Integration Fund and is supported by the Office for the Promotion of Migrant Integration in the Department of Justice and Equality and Pobal.
Local funding from Limerick County Council, Friars' Gate Theatre and Doras Luimni.
