Culture and Consolation - A Culture Night Conversation from the Trinity Long Room Hub
Friday, 18 September 2020, 4 – 4:30pm
To mark Culture Night 2020, the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute will host a special online ‘Culture Night Conversation’ with Director Eve Patten and invited guests Lynn Scarff (Director of the National Museum of Ireland) and Sean Hewitt (Teaching Fellow at Trinity College Dublin, Irish Times reviewer, and author of poetry collection Tongues of Fire (Cape, 2020)). Together we will consider what it means to look to culture, in its many forms, for comfort, refuge, and resilience in difficult times. Join us to listen live, at 4pm.
The Trinity Long Room Hub will also launch a specially commissioned art work by our artist in residence Rita Duffy. This piece, from the artist’s ‘Anatomy of Hope’ series, was conceived in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and addresses the question of how art and culture can console us in times of distress. Visit our website (www.tcd.ie/trinitylongroomhub) from 4pm on Culture Night to view the artwork and interact with its ‘pulsing’ links, a gateway to further explore the topic of culture and consolation.
