Tomorrow sees the first meeting of Dublin Central Arts Workers in The Lab on Foley St at 7pm. The organisers are hoping to use the meeting to “formulate a campaign to secure arts funding, and to communicate the needs of arts workers living in central Dublin to our political representatives”. There are facebook groups for all the constituency-based groups but unfortunately I can’t seem to find the link – if anyone knows of other groups please post them in comments. Sligo/Leitrim one here.
Dublin’s Big Bang Festival takes place this weekend and includes a performance by a friend of mine Francesco Turrisi. Performing in his project entitled Gato Azul he’s joined by percussionist Sergio Krakowski. The performance takes place in Twisted Pepper this coming Sunday at 8pm. More info on the festival website.
