On Brexit and The Belfast Agreement: Crossways Festival

  • Recital Rooms City Halls, Candleriggs Glasgow G1 1NQ (map)

The particular aim of Crossways is to foster and expand the rather weak literary links between Ireland and Scotland across the North Channel. It brings together notable Irish writers, musicians, filmmakers and cultural figures – from both North and South – together with their Scottish peers, in a well-planned and well-balanced festival focussing on the longstanding contribution of Irish people, history, language, culture and writing to both Glasgow and the Scottish nation. The overall balance is about one-third Irish, one-third Diaspora Irish-Scottish, and one-third Scottish. 

Robert Crawford, Peter Geoghegan and Lesley Riddoch in conversation with Chris Agee on the 20th Anniversary of The Belfast Agreement.
