Is Folklore the Future?

Book Now
7:00 pm

A collaboration between Cork Opera House and Chapter. An immersive event where sustainability and personal brand align under the theme, “Is folklore the future?”

We will delve into Ireland’s world-famous folklore and unearth the timeless wisdom woven into its narratives. These age-old tales have the ability to communicate complex themes, providing us with a lens through which we can examine our relationship with sustainability. 

Our event challenges you to reflect deeply on the stories that define your personal brand. How do they align with sustainability and our collective need for action?

Our primary objective is to serve as a catalyst for action. Our thought-provoking speakers and panellists are dedicated to inspiring and motivating our audience to find the change that works from them. We will discuss how our choices with food, clothing and who and where we shop from can impact our own sense of self.

Our speakers and panellists will include:

Eunice Power – Chef and business owner

Doireann Healy- Begley & Bowie

An expert from Cork Opera House

Deirdre Corcoran – Chapter

Jackie Gowran – Business Weaving
