This edition explores the need for a re-framing of our ideas, structures, and communities. Sandrine Uwase Ndahiro calls for expanded thinking about the term ‘Irishness’, what it means and who gets to claim it. Author and artist Kate Mascarenha creates alternative realities via her doll dioramas, Nadine Reid decontructs her trip to Cape Verde and the Quare Nurturing Man reflects on simple shared pleasures. Milliner and DJ Margaret O’Connor believes attitude is everything and her playlist is an eclectic mix of local and international artists. Risa from Cape Verde demonstrates how to make Cachupa, a traditional Cape Verdean dish.
