We are delighted to be returning to Dingle alongside our musical counterpart Other Voices to present 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 both in person at a live event and part of our virtual programme.
Ireland’s Edge is now in its seventh year. Expect the unexpected, the unlikely, the enthralling, the brand new, and the ‘where did that come from?’ It’s that kind of event.
As always there will be music and performance for the head and heart. Bígí linn.
Ireland’s Edge - Altered States / Idir Eatarthu is kindly supported by our leading partner Intel Ireland, and further supported by Jones Engineering and the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
Saturday 27th November, The Skellig Hotel, Dingle
Tuesday 30th November + Wednesday 1st December
