*In ‘Talking Velvet’ , we celebrate  AT HOME ON THE FARM through inviting a number of poets to ‘talk velvet’ to us. Each of the poets will read and share poems that resonate with the theme of farming and farm lives where a deep reverence is held for the land.  The poets however also allude to the conflicted emotions and challenge the romanticisation of farming life.   Given the times in which we all live, poetry’s mandate to measure the rhythms of the year has become a valuable form of witness. These too are here, the rhythms and cadences of farming life reflected in the work of these six poets. 

Featuring Jane Clarke, Mary Coll, Martina Evans, Tom French, Catherine Phil MacCarthy, Máighréad Medbh

*Full & Plenty - Farming & The Future, panel discussion at 3pm on 13 April 2021.  

Full and Plenty is an opportunity for  a conversation about the future of  farming, food production, its impact on climate and indeed, climate change’s impact on farming.   In economic terms, is it possible to imagine a time when the world will produce  ‘enough’ food to feed its burgeoning population?   As we struggle to bring the global pandemic under control, is it possible for us to imagine a fairer and more equitable food future? You are invited into this broad conversation about farming and its potential to be the solution to the social and environmental failure which we are witnessing.

Featuring speakers Professor Mary Corcoran, Dr Edel Kelly, Dr Monica Gorman & Dr Stephen Kinsella.
