Mulhuddart Satellite is the working title of the work from my 3 years as artist in Residence at Draíocht, Dublin 15 (2017 to 2019) and relating to Mulhuddart, a community on the doorstep of Draíocht. It’s just past the half way mark now. As work is starting to be presented publicly I’ll post updates here. So for example the Mulhuddart Satellite exhibition opens in Draíocht at 12noon on November 17th and runs until February 23rd 2019 (there’s some more info below). I hope to see you on the day, or during the run of the show.
This project has been instigated by and is the result of a huge commitment by Draíocht. It’s an example of Draíocht’s local participation focus in its new 2018 to 2022 Strategy – ‘Space for the Arts’. It is also aims to highlight the community involvement central to the work of the Mulhuddart Priority Task Group and the work around the recently published Mulhuddart Strategic Development and Implementation Plan.
I make maps, all sorts of maps from different media. And the Mulhuddart Satellite project presents different ‘mappings’ of Mulhuddart through drawings, soundscape, audio recordings and radio broadcasts. This website is another.
This is a place to host information about Mulhuddart, a catch all to make it easier to find out about stuff. I’ll keep building the website as I get information from different organisations, groups, clubs, businesses and anyone who wants to highlight something in the area. It could easily have local listings, a calendar of events and times… I’m open to suggestions. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I’d be delighted to hear your suggestions and am always happy meet for a chat.
All the best,
