Ireland’s Edge presents The Known World - What We Know Now, an evening of discussion, ideas, stories and performance live from the iconic National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin on Tuesday 22 June at 7pm
'The Known World' is a term used by early cartographers to describe all that was then known about a region or a culture on their maps. At Ireland’s Edge, the term will frame pertinent discussions on how we know what we know, how we are informed and by whom, and how we make judgements based on what we know or believe we know. In an era of distrust, chaos and disinformation we invite some of the country's most compelling and illuminating voices to explore what we know now.
As always there will be music and performance for the head and heart.
