Ireland’s Edge – Through The Looking Glass

Monday, 20 July 2020, 6 – 7:30pm

Ireland’s Edge - Through The Looking Glass

Ireland’s Edge is supported by Intel Ireland and presented in partnership with Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute and the Irish Traditional Music Archive (ITMA). 

Living in unprecedented times of coronavirus the familiar landscape has shifted under our feet. So what do we now know about this new world where almost everything looks and seems the same and yet is profoundly changed?

As lawmakers, artists, scientists, technologists, carers, students and citizens we have passed through the Looking Glass. Unlike Alice we do not know if there is a way back.
