How exciting. I am helping to make Dublin’s first large-scale pop up park. We want to reclaim vacant sites, create colour where there is grey, make platforms for creativity and interaction. YAY! Have a look at the UpStart site for more details…
For now, I really want to start thanking people for their incredible generosity:
- Thanks to Designist (George’s St, Dublin) for all their support and for doing a fund raiser this weekend – slushies in the shop all day Saturday (for a wee donation)!
- Thanks to Redmonk for sharing the link on his site today!
- Thanks to Rabble FB for the mention, much appreciated!
- Everyone at the Dominick Street Community Centre and the DCC for their brilliant input!
- Thanks to everyone who has pledged money through the Fund It also!
Here’s me with some bunting made by local kids yesterday: Me with bunting!
Please help with the fund it or get involved by volunteering, we’d love to hear from you!!
I am helping to create a ‘pop up park’ in Dublin this summer!Exciting and amazing.
It will be on the currently vacant site at the corner of Dominick and Parnell St. It will be incredible, but we need money!
If you can, please help through our Fund It campaign click here.
Or if you can help with time and ideas instead of money that’s great too, just let us know, click here. We need help building it, doing workshops, creative events and lots more…
If you don’t know it already, check out Irish artist Eoin Whelehan’s blog “35 Days” here:
This is a taste of his work. It goes from smart to poignant to funny to beautiful. What a talent! And the prints are available to buy now (great for presents)…
Have a look at my photos from the aforementioned BADATMATH exhibition opening ‘Pencil&Stencil’ last week in Edinburgh, at the Little Ox Gallery:

Here’s a taste of a couple:
This Friday, November 9th, sees the opening of Badatmath’s solo exhibition at Little Ox on Candlemaker Row in Edinburgh. Would love to see you there.
A gorgeous new Gallery has opened in Edinburgh. It’s called LITTLE OX and it’s on Candle Maker Row. It specialises in print and the collection is really beautiful and very affordable (prices start at about £20 and go to about £200).
They have loads of wonderful limited edition originals, framed pieces, band posters etc and carry the work of amazing artists like Aaron Horkey, Strawberryluna and John Dyer Baizley.
Little Ox is also an independent shop and the people behind it are very nice and ethical.
The opening was last weekend. If you’re in Edinburgh you should check it out!
