Artist in the Community, Community


Friday 16th June 2023 at 11.30am. 

Veronica Dyas in collaboration with Fatima Groups United 

In 2023, the people had enough of the ever increasing encroachment of apart-hotels and student accommodation in their neighbourhood of Dublin 8. The already limited green spaces available for biodiversity and, just breathing, was being overshadowed by these towering constructions. They were all around us, rising up over us all, and still the people couldn’t find anywhere decent and affordable to live. 

We took to the streets, again, trying to find new ways to express our dismay. Travelling our area by luas, by foot, this is a performative protest by citizens who know that it doesn’t have to be this way. 

There’s another way to live. 

Will you follow us? 

We’re raising our voices, saying our things, again. 

Can you hear us, 

Is anybody listening? 

This is a Free Event of approximately 1 hour duration. 

We’ll begin at the F2 Centre, 3 Reuben Plaza, Fatima, Dublin 8. We will travel by Luas to Drimnagh Luas Stop, and back by Luas via Rialto Luas Stop to the F2. 

We invite you to follow us. 

This performance is part of ‘Figures of Eight’ a collaboration between Fatima Groups United, Project Arts Centre and Artist Veronica Dyas, funded by the Arts Council Artist in the Community Project Realisation Award, managed by CREATE the national development agency for collaborative arts.
