Starts 28 April | Ends 3 May

Every year, Trinity Week involves a week-long programme of symposia, lectures, roundtable discussions and lots more, all open to the public, and all around a particular theme. The Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences is hosting this year’s programme of events, which explores the theme of “Silence”.

Well, we think Children Should be Seen and Heard!

Come join Us!

Throughout the week, the Trinity Research in Childhood Centre will be covering the Arts Building concourse with posters, pop-up stands and other display material celebrating children and children’s research across Trinity College Dublin.

As TRiCC is host to the Children's Research Network, we would love to have a section celebrating all things CRN also!
