Celebrating Cultures, Promoting Integration
I founded Babylon to help people integrate smoothly to their new country. I was an Immigrant myself in Spain and Australia, and found that it wasn’t easy to integrate.
I was also a teacher, helping students with questions about Ireland. I was happy to help them with all I knew, and what I didn’t know, I researched for them. But I discovered a lot of the information was hard to find, so I thought, if it’s difficult for me, as a native, it must be much more difficult for them.In classes, people would often tell me that I was the only person they spoke English to because they would stay with their own nationality. I wanted to solve this problem and I thought, whatever country you come from, or whatever language you speak, music is a universal language that can bring people together.
So, I decided to create a resource to remove the uncertainty, stress, doubts and barriers about moving country, in 4 different parts.
“I love the Radio, playing music from all around the world as music is a universal language.”
“Fresh articles, featuring what’s on, culture, current affairs, lifestyle and news.”
All the information you need about living here, like work, education, health, law and more. Also about visiting here and things to do. Translated into 6 different languages.”
“Events with multicultural bands and DJs bring people together from different countries to help make friends and create real relationships.”
