On Friday 20th November our new recruit, Aoife McCann, had the opportunity to interview Colin Hassard. Colin is a local performance poet, musician and, in more recent times, the artist in residence for the Northern Ireland Human Rights Festival. In this interview they discuss how Colin was first drawn towards his craft, his major influences and how he became involved in the Human Rights festival. Also included is a snippet of one of Colin’s poems, performed by the artist himself.
