‘Song Seeking’ is a group singing research project funded by Creative Ireland under the National Creativity Fund. The project involves a cross-agency collaboration between Mary Immaculate College (MIC) as the project lead, the Association of Irish Choirs (AOIC) and the Irish Refugee Council (IRC). Across six direct provision (DP) centres, the project involves intergenerational group singing workshops, shared ‘SingIn’ days with local choirs, a new choral commission, a large- scale ‘Big Sing’ event and a final conference. Research throughout the process and from multiple perspectives is integral to the project.
