Conversation Salons are all about getting people away from their phones and screens, having real face-to-face conversations with people in your community, moving away from chit chat and getting to talk about things you really care about, all about human connection and welcoming in all types of people and celebrating what a diverse city Dublin is and how interesting people are once you invite them to share their stories, ideas, and life experiences.
Cities are full of strangers and we like breaking down the barriers between strangers through conversation! In a relaxed café setting over tea and coffee in small groups choose from an enticing conversation menu of thought-provoking questions.
Where: Third Space Smithfield, Smithfield Market, Dublin
When: 7:15pm to 10pm
How much: €5, for booking contact Heather Bourke: 086 8550364 or firstname.lastname@example.org
As part of the Global Days of Action on Tax and Gender, Financial Justice Ireland in association with ActionAid, are hosting a film screening of The Price We Pay, exploring the role of multinationals in avoiding tax. As multinational corporations’ tax practices come under increasing scrutiny, we take a look at the impact that their actions have for women in the Global South. It’s estimated that countries in the Global South lose more than $200 billion a year through tax avoidance – this is more than they receive in aid.
ActionAid’s tax justice photo exhibition will be on display before the screening. The exhibition includes personal stories from Zambia, Ghana, Malawi, Nigeria, Kenya, Sierra Leone, and Liberia, illustrating the impact of tax dodging on people and communities in the Global South.
Where: The Generator Hostel, Smithfield Square, Dublin
