'Scottish Politics in Brexit Britain'– Dundee Arts Cafe on March 14th.

This month’s Dundee Arts Café will be taking a look at Brexit and its impact on Scottish politics.

Professor Paul Cairney, from the University of Stirling, specialises in British politics and will talk about the possibilities that Brexit might bring when he appears at The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery and Museum on Tuesday, 14th March.

Professor Cairney said, “Brexit has prompted major interest in the prospect of a second referendum on Scottish independence. The result of that vote will depend more on the stories of each campaign than an 'evidence-based' assessment of the likely impact of independence.”

Dundee Arts Café is a programme of talks showcasing arts research and developments taking place locally. The series is organised by the University of Dundee in partnership with Abertay University and Leisure & Culture Dundee.

These events enable members of the public to relax and discuss the arts, from English to History, Philosophy to Architecture, and Fine Art to Product Design, with some of the leading names carrying out work in these areas in Dundee, as well as guest speakers. The events last one hour, and speakers talk passionately about their work for 30 minutes before the floor is opened up to an informal discussion with the audience.

‘Scottish Politics in Brexit Britain’ takes place at The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery and Museum at 6pm on Tuesday, 14th March. The event is free and open to all, but limited seating means visitors are advised to arrive early to avoid disappointment. Doors open at 5pm.
