Two events remain in the National Concert Hall’s Words+Ideas series. The first is this Thursday, where Matt Haig talks about stress and rising anxiety in the modern world. The second and possibly the most exciting is actress Rose McGowan, talking about all things Hollywood and #MeToo. Should be a fascinating night!
Matt Haig: notes on a Nervous Planet – Thursday 28th March 2019 – Main Stage
Tickets €25, €20
The world is messing with our minds.
Rates of stress and anxiety are rising. A fast, nervous planet is creating fast and nervous lives. We are more connected, yet feel more alone. We are encouraged to worry about everything from world politics to our body mass index.
– How can we stay sane on a planet that makes us mad?
– How do we stay human in a technological world?
Words+Ideas: Rose McGowan – Saturday 27th April 8pm – 8:00pm – Main Stage
Tickets €29.50, €24.50
Rose McGowan gained global recognition as a leading actress and is now best known as a feminist whistle-blower, activist and agent of change.
Interviewed live on-stage, McGowan will explore the realities of exposing the truth about the inequality and injustice of the entertainment industry and shining a light on a multi-billion-dollar business built on systemic misogyny. How can we dismantle the concept of ‘fame’? How do we continue to maintain the strength required to be Brave?
