Galway 2020 and the European Parliament present EYE on the Edge.


EYE on the Edge is an exciting new festival created by young people taking place from 23 to 25 April 2021. Originally planned as a 2-day festival in Galway City, the festival is now going fully online due to the ongoing pandemic. As such the festival will now happen in multiple locations right across Galway, Ireland, Europe and beyond!

The project brought together young people (age range 16 to 30) and fused politics, arts and culture to create dialogue, share ideas and respond to contemporary European and global challenges. It did this through an engaging and interactive programme of discussions, workshops, artistic performances, exhibitions and other activities.


Our core message was Diverse Voices. We brought together diverse groups, diverse opinions and diverse solutions to some of the most important issues facing us today. You can check out the amazing array of speakers and talent that took part our festival programme:
