Dublin City Council’s Heritage Office, in conjunction with UCD Decade of Centenaries, is organising a two-day Public Conference entitled ‘Conflict + The City’ in Liberty Hall Theatre. The Conference is aimed at the general public and admission is free. Over the two days speakers will engage with the audience in discussing the effect of war on the streets and buildings of cities, the rebuilding that then happens and how this affects the way we experience our cities today. Day one will mostly concentrate on Dublin post-rebellion (and post-1922) and then broaden out to look at major cities across Europe with international speakers focusing on Beirut, Berlin, Belfast, Sarajevo, Calais and London.

What: Conflict + The City Conference

When: Tuesday 31st May, 2016 and Wednesday 1st June, 2016

Where: Liberty Hall Theatre, Eden Quay, Dublin 1

The conference is free but booking is essential.
