Carrying the Songs

Inis Mór to Istanbul 404 people in 50 languages in 29 countries connected throughout the pandemic lockdown

In March 2020, a young storyteller Liam Ó Flaithearta of Inis Mór told a story to his father, who told it to his daughter, who told it to another islander … and so on. This was the start of the project ‘Carrying the Songs’, a giant game of Chinese Whispers in which a story and drawing were passed from person to person across Europe. A drawing is making the same journey. Listen to the stories and watch the drawing change.
