About this Event

Ireland’s Edge – Endings + Edges, Bonds + Borderlands

Brexit, Ireland’s place in Europe, the climate emergency, mass migration, immigration, and the role and impact of the digital revolution, are all issues that have been subjects of continuous discourse, argument and reappraisal in 2019. This November an inspiring line-up of speakers will interrogate these issues in the light of new and rapidly changing realities. 

The borderland between the known predictable world and the uncharted territory ahead will frame our discussions at Ireland's Edge this November. As ever, the Ireland's Edge talks and performances will happen in the company of a curious attendance of thinkers, policy makers, innovators, commentators and artists.

Join us at the Edge to connect, disrupt, play

Ireland’s Edge – Endings + Edges, Bonds + Borderlands is presented in partnership with Intel Ireland and supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, The Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, IDA Ireland and Jones Engineering.
