The I.NY festival celebrates the relationship between Ireland and New York, 'One Story at a Time', through music, literature, film, theatre, fashion, sport, politics, crime, current affairs, and the Annie Moore talks series.

Ireland and New York are synonymous with each other – the shared history, the ever-continuing exchange, the shaping of respective identities and the impact of each place on the other. Of the 34.5million people in North America who claim Irish heritage, it is New York State that the largest number of them call home. Anchored in cultural programming, the festival celebrates the history and modernity of the relationship through music, literature, film, theatre, exhibitions, presentations, street-art and the Annie Moore talks series. The festival also explores the breadth and depth of the connection between Ireland and New York through widened programming highlighting historical and contemporary stories of public service, sport, politics, fashion, food, religion, crime and more.

I.NY is an international cultural project that celebrates and brings to life this shared story. The broader project includes year-round digital story exchange, collaborations and residencies, and cross-Atlantic initiatives in art, education and enterprise.
