How Local Works: DTNI Annual Conference 2020

How Local Works


We are delighted to announce that our first confirmed keynote will be Pat Kane.
Pat is an activist, writer and musician based in Glasgow and London. He is the author of The Play Ethic (Macmillan, 2004), and has written for the Independent, the Sunday Times, the Guardian/Observer and Scotland’s Sunday Herald, of which he was a founding editor in 1999. Currently a columnist with The National, Pat’s forthcoming book is Radical Animal.

Pat is also currently the lead curator of Nesta’s FutureFest event - in his words, “A Glastonbury of the Future”. He is also co-initiator of the new political platform The Alternative UK. And he is still one half of the 80s pop duo Hue And Cry.

The conference will also showcase community development here in NI, so this is the chance to get your organisation front and centre, promoting your services and sharing your expertise. We are particularly interested if you have experience in the following areas:

  • Assets/ownership
  • Social value
  • Commissioning
  • Service delivery
  • Business development

If you would like to exhibit, speak or host a workshop get in touch with us at the DTNI office.
