Pádraig Ó Tuama
Poet, peacemaker, storyteller, Ireland
Wednesday, March 16 ~ Noon and 6:15 p.m.

Pádraig Ó Tuama’s interests lie in language, violence, and religion. Having grown up in a place that has a long history of all three (Ireland, yes, but also Europe) he finds that language might be the most redeeming of all three of these. In language, there is the possibility of vulnerability, of surprise, of the creative movement towards something as yet unseen.
