Extinction Rebellion Youth with Extinction Rebellion Ireland present

Special Event

Extinction Rebellion Youth: First Members Meeting

Dates: 20 Jun - 20 Jun

Show Time: 12pm-5pm

Tickets: €0 (Free, booking required)

The world is in ecological crisis: we are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction event this planet has experienced. Scientists believe we may have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. This is an emergency and we must take immediate action to halt these changes.

Join us on the 20th of June for the kick-off of the Irish Youth branch of Extinction Rebellion (XR)!

XR have been campaigning globally for action on the climate crisis and at this meeting we’ll be launching the youth voice of the XR movement in Ireland. The main focus will be brainstorming the next steps of XR Youth Ireland – actions to take and informing as many people as we can.

It’s easy to feel powerless in the face of the climate crisis, but joining XR Youth empowers young people to be the change they want to see in the world. Anyone between the ages of 12-25 is welcome to come (with a focus on under 19’s) regardless of previous experience or knowledge. This movement will be primarily youth-led.

With massive thanks and appreciation to Project Arts Centre for their generosity we are able to offer this event for free to those in attendance. You can reserve your tickets here with just an email address. On the day of the event if you wish to donate €2 or more for the cost of stage equipment and for further events it would be greatly appreciated.

There will be a lunch break in the middle of the day so please bring food and refreshments for yourself. We will release a schedule for the event over the coming days. If for some reason you cannot make the event after booking a ticket could you please let us know so that we can open up that space for some one else.

We are in a crisis.

Our government is failing us.

This is why we REBEL.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
