Welcome to Babylon, helping you to "Be who you want to be, where you want to be"
Dearan, founder of Babylon.
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.
"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."
"Fresh articles, featuring what's on, culture, current affairs, lifestyle and news."
"I love the Radio, playing music from all around the world as music is a universal language."
"Events with multicultural bands and DJs bring people together from different countries to help make friends and create real relationships."
