Words on the Street – Celebrating European Literature in Translation.

Join Johnny Ward, Bryan Murray, Ger Ryan, Owen Roe, Marian Richardson and Kate Stanley Brennan for an evening celebrating European Literature in Translation around Merrion Square.

Crossing political and literary borders – Words on the Street will take you on a journey across the cultural landscape in an evening of moving and animated readings of translated work by contemporary European authors. Treat your eyes and ears to a new experience – hear voices from ten European countries, across a range of beautiful cultural venues on a trail around all sides of the handsome Merrion Square, one of Dublin's most impressive Georgian areas.

Venues this year are: Literature Ireland; The American College Dublin; The Goethe-Institut Irland; The Irish Architectural Archive; and The Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland. The first reading at each venue will start at 6:30pm and the last at 9:00pm. Each reading takes approximately 15 minutes and is repeated on the hour, and half hour.

IFI Family Festival

Irish Film Institute (IFI)

Spread your film wings this summer with our great programme choices. Stop off in Japan for a brand new anime, or touch down in Australia; root for Sune in Sweden, or feisty Ladhaki girl Chuskit in India. However different the setting, many of the films we’ve chosen share a common theme of characters trying to find their own way against family traditions. Biodiversity and conservation play a part too, in our rainforest-set minibeast opening film and Sunday’s closing film. With Irish premieres and big screen escapades, whatever the weather, you can see the world this July at the IFI.
