We are delighted to announce that, in lieu of his appearance as keynote speaker at last month’s cancelled DTNI conference, Pat Kane will join us for a free live webinar and Q&A at 11am, Wednesday 13th May.Pat is a political commentator, writer, musician and activist. He is the author of The Play Ethic and his forthcoming book is Radical Animal. He is also the co-initiator of the new political platform The Alternative UK, and one half of the 80s pop duo Hue And Cry.
One of Pat’s current preoccupations is that of system change; a fundamental change that has an economic and political reset at its core. But what will that look like in an NI context? How can those in the community sector be repositioned as the prime movers in a shift towards an economy that benefits the many not the few? Can community ownership be the catalyst for a more participative democracy?
These are questions that have a new urgency to them as we start to plan for a post-COVID-19 world.
