Save the date in your diary, November 4th – 7th 2021.
Kilkenomics – the world’s first economics festival – brings together some of the world’s leading economists, financial analysts and media commentators with some of our funniest, sharpest standup comedians.
Bringing people together in person, in cozy environments in Kilkenny City to listen to and exchange ideas and have the craic is what we do.
What started as a way to make sense of the 2008 economic crash has turned into the Kilkenomics festival as we know it today. The aim of Kilkenomics has always been to take economics out of the conference room and academia and make it accessible to ordinary people’s lives.
Our informal, entertaining formats invite our audiences to engage and enjoy. As we like to say: it’s serious, but it’s fun too! Jump into Kilkenomics and engage with as many shows as possible, equip yourself with the information and insight we hope can help us all make smart choices for our futures – inform and entertain yourselves. To quote Kilkenomics regular – Gerry Stembridge “Don’t be put off by the fact that it’s about economics, it’s actually about life”
