The importance of celebrating this contribution and of ensuring it stays part of the future of the sanctuary on rue des Irlandais is clear, as is the excitement of the next step. France and Ireland have had much in common in the past. Both countries are part of a future that is allied, and again the Collège des Irlandais through the Centre Culturel Irlandais will play its part in that future.
The brief of the Centre Culturel Irlandais is to show a wide range of art forms, including visual art, film, literature, music and combinations of all of these. Accommodation for 45 people, drawn from students, artists, writers - all benefitting from time spent in Paris - gives the Centre Culturel Irlandais a unique opportunity to develop a vibrant community where exchange and dialogue are part of daily life.
