Running from 5 until 16 May:
The Fourth Wall, IFI, Eustace Street, Dublin 2
Presented by the Irish Architecture Foundation and the IFI, The Fourth Wall is a film programme that explores architecture in cinema in terms of architecture as more than a built background, but as a protagonist in film. In particular I'm looking forward to the screening of Koolhaas HouseLife on 7 May (which is like a filmic tour of one of his houses given by the cleaner of the house), but the programme also includes a symposium on architecture and cinema and a week-long workshop in Exchange Dublin. More info on all of it here and you can buy tickets here.
Sunday 15 May:
Screenprinting workshop, Hello Operator, 12 Rutland Place, Dublin 1
More info here
I visited Hello Operator for the first time this weekend for a Skinny Wolves gig. Not only was the gig fun but Hello Operator is a fab little space run by the people who gave Dublin Red Space and the Joy Gallery. They run regular screenprinting workshops which are fab value at €45 (and after you get to keep your screen and squeegee). Bring along a design or come up with one when you're there and get printing! Visit the website for more info and to book.
Running until 4 May:
Fund:it: Open House Dublin book, www.fundit.ie
Blah blah blah OHD on Fund:it. I know I've been on and on about it, but only two days left to grab the great rewards and help make the OHD book happen!
Running until 10 May:
Fund:it: Dublin Dance Festival - Access All Areas , www.fundit.ie
Reprising this one too - take a look back if you still need convincing...
Running until 25 May:
Fund:it: The Maglus, www.fundit.ie
The second design project to go up on Fund:it, the Maglus is a magnetic stylus for the iPad. It's a really simple but clever idea - it's difficult to lose because it sticks to the iPad without the risk of scratching it. AND if you pledge €15, you'll get one at a steal (they'll retail at €25).
