In Phizzfest’s The Space, an arts and culture venue in Phibsborough, Dublin 7,

They write:

“Phizzfest The Space is delighted to present ‘Another Ithaca’: an evening of poetry, prose and conversation, which celebrates cross-cultural artistic collaboration as it considers the issue of direct provision in Ireland.

‘Another Ithaca’ comes out of Correspondences, an acclaimed anthology edited by Stephen Rea and Jessica Traynor, that pairs writers, photographers and visual artists in the direct provision system with Irish writers and artists (all proceeds to Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland).

…contributors Katie Donovan, Incaf Yalsinkaya, Jessica Traynor, Marwa Zamir, performance poet Mimmie Malaba and others to be announced will read from their work and discuss the remarkable artistic journey of cultural intersection and mentorship that led to the anthology – along with the wider issues around direct provision.”

      Indirect provision perhaps. It may be cheaper to finance the building and running of such centres on or near the home soil of the asylum seekers, in safe zones? Once the danger situation has abated in their home country, then they could return home to safety and help rebuild it.
