“Dublin is a multicultural city, indeed a world city. But the pandemic has changed everything, making us wonder about the future. What’s the future for post-pandemic Dublin?
To answer that question, we should look again at Dublin’s past. When we dig deep into that past, we find that the city has always been a bit of a mix, but it’s the collision of cultures and religions that has defined its character and ultimately its strength.
Over six sessions I’m exploring this idea of Dublin as hybrid city – in search of Dublin’s DNA. Join us on this journey every Tuesday at 6pm.”
