Ireland's Edge - Altered States / Idir Eatarthu

Live Event

Saturday 27th November, The Skellig Hotel, Dingle


Tuesday 30th November + Wednesday 1st December

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.
