Talks Series at IT Sligo

 

Curated by Ronnie Hughes, this series of seven talks uses the arts as a means to promote an understanding of cultural difference and to share experiences and expressions of divergent cultures, beliefs and ways of living.  Speakers include Professor Declan McGonagle, Dr Caoimhin Mac Giolla Leith, Katerina Gregos, Joseph Wolin, Phil Collins, Dr Christa-Maria Lerm Hayes and Annie Fletcher and the talks continue until the end of April 2010.
