Who moves to Dublin when so many Dubliners are leaving themselves? The people who are making the city their new home will be the focus of the next Banter session in the Twisted Pepper on Wednesday 27th. A group of “new Dubliners” will talk about their experiences of living in the city, what keeps them here, and what they miss about where they are from.

The panel includes film-maker Wissame Cherfi, Monika Sapielak of the Centre for Creative Practice, cafe-owner Hassan Lemtouni and a financial data research specialist Minhee Won. There will also be a screening of Wissame’s award-winning short film We Are Dublin.
