Hopefully, by now you will have caught some of the wonderful media pieces popping up around the place about the Culture Night project that I’m working on – Goodall’s Edible Art Gallery. Our sponsor has been really proactive about the PR end of things, working closely with myself and Denise of The Doorway Gallery to spread the word.
If you haven’t caught any of the information, this is it in a nutshell; on Culture Night – 20th September, we’re transforming The Doorway Gallery into an Edible Art Gallery. This means that we will have artwork on display that’s made from food! We were heavily inspired by the work of Miss Cakehead in the UK, but as far as I can tell, this is the first of its kind in Ireland.
As with previous years, myself and Denise have also planned a street party on South Frederick Street outside the gallery with a variety of musicians, performers and of course, we’ll be hosting Dr Sketchy’s Anti Art School on stage for passerby to come and participate but this time round, we’ll also have artists in the street on easels so you can watch them working away too.
There’s more detailed information about the night over here.
As you can imagine, a LOT of work has gone into the planning for the night and we’re still working our behinds off to make our vision a reality. We’re also looking for volunteers to help us out in the run up to the night or on the night. Could you help? We’re looking for:
- Volunteers to give guided tours of the gallery through the night
- Volunteers to help lay out and decorate the gallery during the week of Culture Night
- Stage hands to help the show run smoothly on the night
- Prop-makers/ Crafters to help make decorations for inside the gallery and on the main stage
Email us with some information about yourself, what you’d like to help out with and if you’re a prop-maker or crafter, please include pictures or links to your previous work: firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to hearing from you!
