In Ireland, we have an addiction problem. We can’t argue with that. Have we ever talked about it? Do we ever talk about anything here? It’s a hard thing to talk about, we’re learning that. We need your help. We want to have a conversation, infused with ART, about addiction where everyone can hear each other. We want to be able to sit in a room together. Can we?

ADDICTION is festival about addiction, inspired by the people we met in Depaul Ireland hostels, to discuss addiction in Ireland today. It’s a three day investigation. There will be people talking about addiction, people who have lived it and some who haven’t. There will be film, there will be live performance and the bar will be open. It will be different than before, because it has to be.
