When you meet other people living in Dublin and the conversation turns to creative pursuits you're often like 'I do stuff! Do you also do stuff?'
The problem, of course, is making the time and space to do your creative stuff.
This is primarily a writing group, but it also aims to create a space for people to meet each other and share ideas. It's inspired by events like the Harbour Bar's Creativity Club, but with a more writing-groupy focus on weekly prompts and themes. Other forms such as visual art, performance, film, photography, poetry, essays, and music are all very welcome.
What stuff will the group be interested in?
Topic-wise, nothing is too silly or mundane. If your creative work relates to feminism, climate action, class, race, and LGBTQ+ experiences this is extra welcome. This group isn't just for people who already make art, or who are somehow ~established~. You're especially welcome if you haven't done creative projects before but are looking to start some.
Some stuff we might do in the future:
- showcase events as a collective including performance nights/exhibitions - put together a zine-type publication of our work - have, in the manner of a reading group, certain books/essays/films we look at on a given week
