Galway Traveller Movement stages Misleór Festival of Nomadic Cultures

By 23rd September 2022No Comments

The 2022 Misleór Festival of Nomadic Cultures will be staged by the Galway Traveller Movement from Thursday, September 29 to Friday, October 1.

Misleór, which means ‘wanderer’ in the Irish Traveller language Cant (aka Gammon), celebrates and connects nomadic peoples from around the world.

Now in its 4th year, the festival explores nomadic identity through the lens of creativity and cultural action for change.

Nomadic peoples have survived for thousands of years, practicing their distinct cultures and traditions.

Misleór will spark important dialogue about cultural rights, challenging the prejudice and discrimination that continues to impact nomadic communities.

With a vibrant programme of music, theatre, film, poetry, and visual art, Misleór Festival is a truly unique and inspiring event that celebrates the diversity within nomadic communities, and showcases nomadic artists and activists who are claiming a space for their culture in today’s society.
