Home to Me

@ VOL 10 ON DEC 02, 2015

Born on the wrong side of a DART station, Lorcan Sirr took a while to find his way into the city, but when he did he made straight for the port and a ferry to England. He spent a period of time a Europe's most highly qualified truck driver, until a Finn called Teemu also got his PhD and a new Scania. He likes giving controversial talks, but has sometimes noted a bright red dot following him about on his forehead and wonders what that is.

State of the Nation

@ VOL 10 ON DEC 02, 2015

The Map of The State is a graphic work by JP O'Malley that took Ireland’s 1937 constitution as its starting point. The map outlines the legislative, judicial, executive and local governmental structures of state. Just as these state structures have evolved over the intervening decades to become complex, layered and intertwined, so too did the map as available information was layered on. The shape and structure of the map was informed by the available information and the challenges of displaying this information in a single view.

Over the duration of the project the map will include greater detail on the departments, agencies and bodies that make up the Irish state in 2015. The early stages of the work will consist of a printed graphic depiction of the evolving map before literally being made concrete.

The anatomy of a great venue

@ VOL 10 ON DEC 02, 2015

The Locals was set up at the start of 2015. We want to uncover the people, places and things that make us proud of our city and tell their story.  

The Locals was setup by John Mahon, formerly a director with Bodytonic and responsible for setting up and running The Bernard Shaw Venue.  

The Locals produce our own shows and collaborate with people on events around the city like markets, festivals, screenings, parties, pop ups, banquets, venues….these are the sort of things.

They do them under different names like Toejam, Telephones and The Eat Up. The Locals is the umbrella name for it all.

They’re from Dublin and proud of it.  They know this city is world class and want to see it at the table with the like of Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Berlin. They're doing to do their bit to help.
