Programme participants

Meet some of the people appearing on the Dublin 2019 programme

Dublin 2019’s programme team is still in the early stages of confirming programme participants and designing programme items. We are thrilled to share the names of the early confirmed participants who will be joining us next year in Dublin. We’ll be confirming additional programme participants over the coming months.

Note: In order that we can invite someone to be a programme participant, they have to first fill out our Programme Participant Query Form to request a survey and to give consent for us to contact them. If you would like to see someone on programme, please encourage them to fill in the form, so that can be contacted by our programme team.
