Event Details

Ireland's Edge - the ideas and discussion strand of Other Voices returns home to Dingle this December as part of #OV2023!

Taking place from 1 - 2 December, this year's programme, ‘Trust Issues / Muinín Faoi Amhras’, considers the breakdown of trust in the structures that uphold our society - public institutions, parliaments, hospitals, universities, broadcasters, the technology industry and business, and asks if and how it can be restored. Growing levels of distrust in key public and private institutions present profound challenges to our future, both on home shores and beyond. As we are constantly confronted with conflicting information, deciding what to do and who to believe becomes all the more difficult, and threatens to deepen divisions in all aspects of civil and social life.
