Episode 22,  Mar 07, 2018, 06:00 AM

In this episode of Sparking Change, we are joined by the effervescent Yemi Azamosa – spoken word artist, activist and charismatic human – about her upcoming show The Mouth of a Shark, and the experience of queer migrants in Ireland. Yemi is originally from Nigeria and reminds us of how accepting and safe a place Ireland can be, in comparison with other countries, for people in the LGBT community. She is the founder of the Fried Plantains Collective, a live event featuring spoken word, music and film, which aims to be more representative of people of colour in its presentation of their stories and histories. Yemi is a force of nature; get ready to laugh, cry, and laugh some more.
