Inspired by the RSA’s history as a social improvement organisation dating back over 250 years, our new First Friday Changemakers series offers an interactive space to share and develop ideas for social change.

On 7 April, we’re joined by Philip King. Philip is a curator and producer of bespoke cultural events, film director, writer, musician, broadcaster, commentator, and contributor to national and international forums on the role of culture and arts in a world where we are more connected and more isolated than ever before.

In 1987, with writer and director Nuala O'Connor, he produced the ground-breaking and National Primetime Emmy Award-winning series Bringing It All Back Home, the story of Irish music and America. He has since continued to produce and direct film, television and cultural events such as Ceiliúradh at the Royal Albert Hall, commissioned by President of Ireland; Michael D. Higgins, Glaoch: A President’s Call (filmed in Aras An Uachtaráin); Notre Dame: A Welcome Home; The Gloaming: Moment to Moment; Gabriel Byrne: Stories from Home; and many others.

Most notably, Philip co-created Ireland's best-known music series, Other Voices, with Oscar-winning musician Glen Hansard. Now in its 22nd year, Other Voices continues to grow and evolve.

Join us on the first Friday of the month for an informal talk from one of our guest speakers, followed by a chance to discuss the topic of the day or anything else on your mind, in small breakout rooms. We start at 2pm and we’ll be finished by 2.45pm, allowing you to enjoy your Friday afternoon with inspiring speakers and interesting colleagues.
