Dear all,

Hope you are enjoying the summer thus far.
Please put August 24th – 27th into your diaries for some exciting arts/community and heritage events that will happening in the Kilmainham Inchicore area – a mini-festival – I’ll be back with more info soon.

I’m currently looking for visual artists who might be interested in organising an exhibition over this period. Also, anyone who has ideas of things they might like to run independently during the period which we could promote and assist in hosting. Ideas include: book launches, poetry readings, music etc.

Good wishes, Vawn
