Event description

Description

Just like other parts of the economy, the cultural industries rely on the unhindered movement of people and ideas across the border between Ireland and Britain.

How can me make sure that creativity continues to flow in both directions after Brexit? What barriers does Brexit throw up for creative practitioners working between Ireland and the UK? What opportunities does it present for the creative economy? How should writers, artists, musicians, and thinkers respond to Brexit and its social and political uncertainty? Can workers in the creative economy create their own backstop to keep channels of communication open between Ireland and the UK in the event of a no-deal Brexit?

We will be joined by a panel of speakers discussing this topic. Our speakers include Susan McKay, Mary Cloake, Professor Victor Merriman and Professor James Moran and the event will be chaired by Professor Martin McQuillan.

This panel will explore these questions and much more.
