Empathy and Homelessness

Conn Holohan

Watch: Empathy and Homelessness

Conn Holohan, Course Director of the BA in Film & Digital Media at NUI Galway, is creating a project with clients of Galway Simon, which aims to capture participants’ life stories as oral history and virtual reality, thus empowering the participants and creating empathy in viewers who have not experienced such life stories.

He will be joined by Kandaliss Molloy, a programme participant from Galway Simon, and they will give audiences a demonstration of how the project works. He will also be joined by Clare Dunne, star of RTE’s Kin, and writer and star of Herself, a wonderful film about a homeless woman.

The event will be moderated by Catherine Dunne, author of An Unconsidered People, a landmark study of Irish emigrants in London.
