Goethe-Institut Irland and Connect The Dots present

Dinner And Dialogue About Information And Identity In THE DIGITAL AGE

In an ever evolving digital era, it seems we no longer have a choice to engage in the realities of data and how it is used.

Often we get swept away in the positive, almost rapturous language that surrounds new technological developments.

This leaves us little time to sit back and reflect on what the effects will be on our identity, on our emotional wellbeing, on our security versus our privacy.

If we are indeed digital by default, how do we know if it’s working for us and not against us…?

Join us for a long table dinner and discussion with people from all backgrounds and different interests in this topic.

Special guests include, among others:

  • Dennis Jennings, pioneer of the Internet as we know it
  • Journalist Una Mullally
  • Renate Samson, Chief Executive of Big Brother Watch
  • Eamon Ryan, Green Party leader
  • Edward McDonnell, Director of CeADAR Centre for Applied Data Analytics
  • Linda Doyle, of Trinity’s Connect Centre

The aim is not to find answers or solutions but to open up dialogue on this incredibly important and increasingly complex area.

We are also pleased to welcome German performance artist Nezaket Ekici that evening, who will perform her piece Zeitgeist the following day at Project Arts Centre.


The Goethe-Institut is the Federal Republic of Germany’s cultural institute, active worldwide. We promote the study of German abroad and encourage international cultural exchange.

Connect the Dots – we bring to life customised events that are anything but conventional. We co-create our events with our guests to ensure that each experience is engaging and meaningful for all involved. Our aim is to bring people together around topics that matter.
