Cultural Memory and the Good Friday Agreement

Admission Free, registration required
Start Time 18:00
End Time 20:00

25 years ago, The Belfast Agreement was signed. It had taken 25 years to get from the Sunngingdale Agreement to this peace settlement.

The new accord was built on self-determinism and parity of esteem and would become known as The Good Friday Agreement. Signed between two governments and 8 political parties, how did this political behemoth affect those who had to live within its terms? What would the cultural memory and legacy of this defining document be?

Moya Cannon – Irish poet

Michelle Lenehan – Multidisciplinary Artist, Music Producer, and singer-songwriter

Stephen Sexton – poet, and Lecturer, Seamus Heaney Centre, Queen’s University, Belfast

Greg Quiery – Liverpool-based poet and historian originally from County Down
