The I.NY Project explores and celebrates the relationship between Ireland and New York

Focusing on both the modern and historic relationship between Ireland and New York, I.NY is a multi-platform, multi-disciplinary cultural and diaspora project anchored in personal stories – some well-known, many unknown – and culminating annually in the I.NY Festival.

With programming focused on culture and the diaspora, and working with national & international partners, the I.NY Festival celebrates the unique Ireland New York story through music, literature, film, theatre, dance, visual art, and both popular & underground culture. The festival also explores the respective influence of each place on the other’s social, political, educational, entrepreneurial and sporting lives.

In 2022, and combining digital, pre-recorded & live shows, I.NY is partnering with Ireland’s St. Patrick’s Festival, bringing the Ireland New York story to an audience all around the world. I.NY is also this year partnering with The British Council and British Embassy in Ireland, programming shows & conversations which explore the cultural relationship between Ireland and the UK in the same, celebratory spirit.

I.NY and Ireland’s St. Patrick’s Festival
The I.NY Project + Ireland’s national St. Patrick’s Festival have agreed a programming and broadcast partnership for 2022, streaming the I.NY Festival programme across SPFTV and all St. Patrick’s Festival digital channels. Based on their digital audience engagement in 2021, St. Patrick’s Festival anticipates 100 million engagements and 900,000 unique event views this year, in 140 countries across the world.
I.NY and The British Council

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities, on the ground in six continents and over 100 countries. The British Council and the British Embassy in Ireland invited The I.NY Project to curate conversations in a similar spirit to I.NY curations, but exploring the Ireland U.K. relationship. These conversations will also stream as part of the 2022 St. Patrick’s Festival digital programme.
