Ethically, an open city would of course tolerate differences and promote equality but would more specifically free people from the straitjacket of the fixed and the familiar, creating a terrain in which they could experiment and expand their experience” – Richard Sennett, Building and Dwelling

Taking this statement by Richard Sennett as a point of departure, the Irish Architecture Foundation invites you to a series of public conversations and speculations on Dublin as an ‘open city’.

Join us at the second in the series to talk about Justice and Creativity in the city with Professor Katherine O’Donnell.

Katherine is Professor of the History of Ideas at UCD’s School of Philosophy. She has been an activist for many years, involved in, most notably, the Justice for Magdalenes Campaign and, more generally, with justice issues and the LGBTQ+ community. She has just published her first novel, SLANT.

Places are limited and must be booked in advance. There are five conversations in the Open Table series and each must be booked separately. Lunch will be provided and booking opens 14 September.

Accessibility Information

The venue is wheelchair accessible and has accessible toilets. However please note that the location is in Temple Bar which contains cobblestone streets. If you have any access needs please contact for assistance.
