We are delighted to welcome back to The Crescent the Imagine as they bring to the stage another incredible festival.
Imagine is a unique festival designed to excite people’s minds and passions in an inspiring annual programme of performance, discussion and debate. It is a high quality showcase for new ideas on politics, culture and activism in Northern Ireland.
The problem with patriotism?
Do you love your country? Does the sight of your national flag fill you with pride?
Whatever your nationality, patriotism is a hugely significant part of modern life, influencing everything from the cars we buy to the politicians we vote for. And yet we rarely take the time to question it.
Join researcher David Mountain (The University of Edinburgh) as he explores the many problems with patriotism. Bringing together evidence and arguments from science, philosophy and politics, he’ll reveal why patriotism is illogical, dangerous and a complete waste of time. Hosted by comedian Susan Morrison.
In association with the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas.
