Ireland's Edge - Altered States / Idir Eatarthu
Live event (sold out): Saturday 27 November
Online discussions & performances: Tuesday 30th November + Wednesday 1st December
We are delighted to announce our return to Dingle alongside Other Voices to present Ireland's Edge - Altered States / Idir Eatarthu, both in person and online.
‘Altered States / Idir Eatarthu’, is a description suggestive of a range of emotional and personal conditions, but also of the collective public, political and social circumstances arising out of our recent experiences as a people and a nation.
Ireland’s Edge takes these themes and explores them within the context of disinformation, data privacy, climate change, the housing crisis, cultural identity, place and much more in the company of some of Ireland’s, and the world’s, foremost thinkers, policy makers, innovators, commentators and artists.
Line up: Séamas O'Reilly, writer and journalist / John Mulholland, Editor of the Guardian US / Áine Kerr, COO and co-founder, Kinzen / Orla Hegarty, Assistant Professor, School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy, UCD / Kerri Ní Dochartaigh, writer / Rob Curley, Architect, Planning & Housing Commentator / Roberta Murphy, Imperial Centre for Psychedelic Research / David Kenny, Associate Professor of Law, TCD / Brian MacCraith, Chair of the COVID-19 Vaccination Task Force and Future of Media Commission / Farah Elle, singer-songwriter / Dr Rory Hearne, Assistant Professor in Social Policy, Maynooth University / GAIKA, Multidisciplinary Artist / Niamh Regan, Musician and Performer / Dr Michael Dorsey, Sustainable Energy Investor and Member, Club of Rome
Ireland's Edge - The Podcast
Over the years we’ve hosted everything from diplomatic roundtables to pagan raves, science fiction theatre to political debates. Now we’re sharing these discussions with a wider audience on our new podcast, produced by South Wind Blows.
In this first series, we’ll be asking questions about our past, present and future after a year in which the Covid-19 pandemic has turned life upside-down. There will be discussions of transhumanism, the Irish language, space exploration, economics, the hidden history of the banjo, Taylor Swift and chaos theory - and almost everything in between!

IRELAND’S EDGE is a multidisciplinary creative event series that makes up a distinct strand of Other Voices festival of music and ideas. At Ireland's Edge, we believe the best version of our future will only be realised by fruitful collaborations and collisions between the arts, technology, innovation, storytelling and human experience. We regard it as imperative that culture be given a central role as we try to plan creatively and effectively for the future. We come from an edge that is simultaneously physical, sectorial, rural and metaphorical. From the edge, you can experiment, you can play, you can innovate, you can disrupt.
OTHER VOICES - THE BROADER CANVAS
Other Voices started as a one-off music event in a small church in the west of Ireland and over the last 15 years the idea has grown. Other Voices is now an established fixture in the musical calendar – a ‘must attend’ event for performers and audiences alike. Other Voices has led to the creation of an international music TV series and the filming of that series subsequently became a music festival, a tourism event in its own right that celebrates the local on a global scale. While the stellar quality of the music at Other Voices continues to reach ever higher levels, Other Voices is a constantly evolving and innovating force in the world of music events and cultural activism, constantly exploring and experimenting multi-dimensionally across content programming, event formats and distribution channels
