For three days, some of the country's finest historians, writers, academics, artists, actors and musicians will gather in one place, giving you and your family a fun and unique opportunity to experience a cultural event like no other.
The Centenary Conversations includes a landmark national conference titled 1916 -2016 The Promise and Challenge of National Sovereignty and a specially curated Fringe programme.
Hosted by NUI Galway, in partnership with the Department of Education and Skills, as part of Ireland 2016, this special event offers an unmissable opportunity to hear some of the finest minds explore what it means to be part of a republic in a globalised world.
The conference will be opened by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD, and guest speakers include renowned historian and academic Professor Roy Foster (interviewed on page 4), Professor Louise Richardson (Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford) and Chancellor of NUI (and former President of the Irish Human Rights Commission) Dr Maurice Manning.
And it's FREE.

In addition to the conference, a specially curated Fringe programme of talks, debates, music and exhibitions will spark your imagination, challenge your preconceptions and offer the opportunity for you to contribute your ideas as to what the legacy of the centenary year should be.
