Why we need to re-imagine Ireland
A new campaign recently launched in New York could be just the thing.
“Imagine Ireland brings to American audiences a wealth of contemporary creators and a calendar of culture which will reshape and reinvigorate notions of Ireland, what it means to be Irish and the potential for Ireland into the future.”
That’s the promise of an Irish Government-sponsored campaign that will bring 400 Irish shows to 40 states and will include an operatic
version of 'The Importance of Being Earnest' featuring the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra.
It sounds like a whole lot of fun. And I look forward to attending many events in the coming year. I’m hopeful too, that in addition to
updating our notion of what it means to be Irish, the some 1,000 artists participating in the Imagine Ireland campaign will also look
at Ireland anew, through the lens of Irish America. Perhaps they will discover some of the treasures of a latter-day Ireland that lie in the
repository of our emigrant mind banks and take some of that back home with them. Imagine that.
