The Cake Café presents

Special Event


Dates: 05 Apr - 06 Apr

Show Time: 12pm - 3pm

Please click here for the 2016 café!

Our Table is a celebration of food traditions from a variety of countries.

The two-day pop-up café aims to:

  • highlight the fact that people in direct provision are not allowed to cook for themselves
  • show how this impacts on family and cultural identity
  • create awareness around the risk of this wealth of food knowledge being lost to the next generation

The café menu will be devised and cooked each day by people in direct provision. There will also be a drop-in area in the foyer with hot drinks and cake from various nations such as robooish, chai and honey and mint tea.

There will be a suggested donation of €2 for the drinks but it will mainly be a place where people can chat, interact and find out about more about direct provision.

There’s also an option for full lunch, if you’re feeling extra hungry! Tables can also be booked through The Cake Café. People with booked tickets will be seated for a three course meal.

The Cake Café encourages the public to donate flowers from their garden to decorate the table.

Money raised will go to cover costs of participants’ travel, food and equipment; excess will go to the Refugee Council of Ireland.

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…
