In collaboration with Cork City Libraries for Heritage Week 2021
Good Day Cork is proud to present ‘An Earth Song’ – a multilingual poetry film. Tina Pisco, the first Writer-in-Residence at Cork City Libraries and a multilingual writing group with whom she collaborated, worked on this project for several months. The group discussed feelings, reactions, hopes, and fears related to climate change, as well as how our multilingual backgrounds influence how we express ourselves. The seven poets present nine languages.
The writers (& the languages they perform) in order of appearance are: Cinthya Torrez Quispe/Aymara, Spanish Claudia Zedda/Italian Tina Pisco/ English, French, Spanish Dr. Lekha Menon Margassery /Tamil Nqobizitha Vella/ Ndebele Cecilia Gamez/Spanish, Náhuatl Anja Bakker/Dutch
