Join artist Pádraig Spillane, historian Peter Hession, and Sirius Arts Centre director Miranda Driscoll for a discussion exploring themes relating to the exhibition and its link to the surrounding harbour.

We will then take to the water on a RIB highlighting the past and present of the harbour through different locations.
