Northern Slant is very excited to be part of next month’s Imagine! Festival of Ideas & Politics – and we want you to be part of it too. We’re delighted to host the panel discussion:


Control, Alt, Delete: Resetting How We Tell Northern Ireland’s Story

Venue: The Dark Horse, Belfast, BT1 2LB
Date: Monday 12 March
Time: 6.30pm – 8.30pm
Admission: Free

Event description

Twenty years since the peace was won, a shared society continues to elude us. Do we currently have the tools to rectify that? Here, we explore the role which new media can play in escaping the divisive narratives of the past, and how – together – we can tell Northern Ireland’s story.

Join Northern Slant Deputy Editor Jamie Pow and a panel of journalists and commentators who have lived, reported and broadcast Northern Ireland’s story to date. Have your questions ready as LucidTalk present findings from their latest opinion poll.

Guests include:

  • William Crawley, BBC journalist and broadcaster
  • Sam McBride, Political Editor of the News Letter
  • Lyra McKee, freelance journalist and media editor
  • Kevin Meagher, author of Why a United Ireland is Inevitable and How It Will Come About
  • Bill White, Managing Director of LucidTalk

Tickets are limited, so early registration is required. Please sign up on our Eventbrite page here.

The full Imagine! festival programme of events will be launched on Monday 12 February.
