Shona McCarthy will take us on an illustrated journey of her work as cultural leader in Northern Ireland during times of conflict and peace and the vital role that culture and arts played in both her professional and personal journey. From Belfast to Derry via India, Jordan, Indonesia, the US and many other places besides, she will take us to her current role at the helm of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, the organization that underpins the world’s largest Arts Festival. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe celebrates its 70th anniversary this year, what are the challenges and opportunities for an arts festival in the local and global context of 2017?
