National Ambassadors - Maeve Higgins


Cobh born writer, podcaster and comedian Maeve Higgins, who is currently based in New York in the US, will take part in Culture Night 2020 this year as its Inaugural International Trailblazer, representing the voice of Ireland’s cultural diaspora. This is the first year that Culture Night has ambitiously stepped out of Ireland to share the Irish cultural experience with those abroad. 

As part of Culture Night 2020, Maeve will participate in an online conversation with writer and journalist Caelainn Hogan, with additional insights from Bulelani Mfaco, spokesperson for the Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland.
