Guest Speaker: Kim Haughton - Multi-Award Winning Irish Photographer
Kim Haughton completed her MA at London University of the Arts. She was named as an Irish photographer to watch in 2015 by TIME magazine who described her work as 'at once sparse and textured'. She spent the early part of her career as a photojournalist covering post conflict humanitarian issues around the globe. Her work has been exhibited in London, New York, Oslo and Dublin and her images have appeared in publications worldwide including The Financial Times, Der Spiegel and Vanity Fair. In 2017, she published her first book entitled Portrait of a Century, a visual time capsule of one hundred images of people who are threaded together through a shared language, culture and nationhood. The accompanying exhibition was launched at Collins Barracks, Dublin in April 2017 by the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins who commented that “Kim’s photographs struck me as a celebration of what I think may be one of the more eclectic aspects of Ireland's great wealth, the diversity of its people and the range of their backgrounds and contributions. The images I saw constitute a powerful evocation of the bounty of ideas and achievements and vulnerabilities and commitments of an intellectual and political, artistic or sporting kind that have shaped our collective destiny through ten decades”. Kim currently works as a staff photographer at the United Nations Secretariat in New York City.
This event is hosted by Past President Niall O'Leary.

Guest Speaker: Máirtín Ó Muilleoir - Sinn Féin MLA for South Belfast, Publisher, Entrepreneur and Civic Leader
An advocate for the new and resurgent Belfast, he has launched a series of initiatives designed to showcase the very best of the city including the the Belfast International Homecoming which promotes links between Belfast and the global Irish Diaspora. He is Chairman of the Belfast Media Group publishing company which includes the New York weekly, The Irish Echo among its titles. Since leading the acquisition of the Irish Echo in 2007, he has prioritized links of mutual benefit between Ireland and the US, with a special focus on the peace process. In 2016, he supported an investor group which took over the Irish American news website IrishCentral.com.
An Irish speaker, he believes strongly in the promotion of culture as the bedrock of successful and diverse communities. He first entered Belfast City Hall in 1987 at the age of 27, subsequently leading a series of court challenges to assure equal treatment for nationalists in the city.
A journalist and author, his books in Irish and English include a history of Belfast City Hall ‘Belfast’s Dome of Delight’ and the novella ‘Ceap Cuddles’.
He left City Hall in 1997 to concentrate on business but returned in 2011 as the first ever Sinn Féin councillor for the Balmoral area of South Belfast.
He served as Lord Mayor of Belfast from June 2013-June 2014 and during his term appointed ten chaplains including representative of the Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist faiths as well as ministers from the four main Christian churches. He also pioneered transatlantic links, signing a sister city agreement with the Mayor of Boston Marty Walsh and welcomed President Obama to Belfast. Among his awards in 2014 were the PRIDE Festival Award for Best Political Contribution to the LGBT Community and the Ancient Order of Hibernians of America JFK Medal, presented in St Louis, Missouri.
He was returned to the Northern Ireland Assembly in May 2016 and appointed to the post of Finance Minister where he pioneered a raft of new initiatives including per cent for art, a social value act and a rethink of property and domestic tax policies. The collapse of the Northern Ireland Executive in January 2017 triggered a fresh election in March 2017 at which he was again returned for South Belfast.
In May 2017, he was the proud recipient of an honorary doctorate from Quinnipiac University in Connecticut.
He is married to Helen O'Hare and they have four children.
