SMALL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN NATIONS: NARCISSISM OR NECESSITY? (DISCUSSIONS)

A series of lively panel discussions programmed by Dylan Haskins onm themes and topics arising from this year’s Festival programme.

Ireland and the UK are closely intertwined yet there are enduring differences in all spheres including the arts and culture. The current evolution of the relationship between Ireland and the UK in the context of the economic shifts and the visit of Queen Elizabeth suggest a political will for a positive. shared narrative between Ireland and the UK. But what impact does this have on art and cultural exchange? Has the rather lopsided relationship Ireland has with the UK cast a shadow which cuts Ireland off from European influences and partnerships? Are artists and cultural leaders in Ireland and now in Scotland and Wales focused on the narcissism of small differences? In this session, leading international playwrights from Ireland and England will discuss the dynamics of Irish and British theatre and the relevance of national identity in their work.

This event is part of the Next Door Neighbours programme in Seven Arts Festival in Ireland 2012. Through the Next Door Neighbours programme, British Council Ireland and the Arts Council Ireland, in parallel with the London 2012 Olympic Games and Cultural Olympiad will be strengthening and deepening the relationship between UK and Ireland in Arts.

ALL PANEL DISCUSSIONS ARE FREE. TICKETS ON THE DOOR. PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME.

An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

PROJECT FATIMA: ALL IN

LOCKDOWN LETTERS

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
