Dissenters

TIME: 8PM 
TICKETS: €10

Join us for an evening with actor and writer, John Connors, in conversation with journalist Marie-Louise Muir, BBC NI’s The Arts Show.

Continuing our series of discussions with artists whose personal and political convictions are threaded through their creative work, we are delighted to welcome John Connors, IFTA winner for Best Actor 2018 to Drogheda Arts Festival.  John has spoken directly and honestly about his own struggles with depression, and has been an outspoken critic of state policy in the areas of Travellers’ rights, homelessness, and funding for film. His fearlessness and commitment to the causes he espouses makes John Connors an ideal Dissenter for DAF 2018.  

Marie-Louise Muir is the voice and face of arts broadcasting in Northern Ireland where she has presented Arts Extra on BBC Radio Ulster and The Arts Show on BBC NI television.
