Backstop: ensuring Irish-UK cultural collaborations after Brexit

Backstop: ensuring Irish-UK cultural collaborations after Brexit 24Oct

The Institute for Creative Enterprise, Edge Hill University is a cultural leader in policy and arts training.

In this session Edge Hill Professor Martin McQuillan chairs a panel to discuss this critical topic as part of #LIF2020. Speakers include: Susan McKay, Mary Cloake, Professor James Moran, Professor Victor Merriman.

Just like other parts of the economy, the cultural industries rely on the unhindered movement of people -and ideas- across the border between Ireland and Britain. How can me make sure that creativity continues to flow in both directions after Brexit? What barriers does Brexit throw up for creative practitioners working between Ireland and the UK? What opportunities does it present for the creative economy? How should writers, artists, musicians and thinkers respond to Brexit and its social and political uncertainty? Can workers in the creative economy create their own backstop to keep channels of communication open between Ireland and the UK in the event of a no-deal Brexit?

This panel will explore these questions and much more.
