Rosie Lynch and Hollie Kearns, Callan Workhouse Union, Forms of Escapism

July 22, 2015
@ The Sugar Club

Ice cream, rainbows, sandy sandwiches, socks and sandals. Whatever it is, get your summer buzz on with our summer edition of Pecha Kucha Dublin with Totally Dublin. Our spring event at The Grand Social was packed out of it so we’re moving to a bigger venue, The Sugar Club.

This time around, our speakers will be touching on topics like exploration, the outdoors, public space and the environment. Nothing major, then.

Our punmaster-in-residence Ciaran O’Gaora (Zero-G) was mastering ceremonies again and like last time around, we kept your cogs oiled with some complimentary Peroni.

Rosie Lynch and Hollie Kearns, investigate forms of escapism – summer, politics, community and theatre.

Independent curators Rosie Lynch and Hollie Kearns are based at Callan Workhouse Union, Co. Kilkenny where along with curator Etaoin Holahan and others they are involved in transforming a semi-derelict wing of Callan Workhouse into a shared space for art, design, research and community facilities and activity. For the last two years they have been working with Camphill Community Callan on Nimble Spaces, an innovative housing project developing long term collaborations between artists, architects and adults with a disability, considering ‘home’ and shared living. Other recent curatorial projects further afield include Time Machine, a research event exploring temporality as part of Im/Plants residency at National Sculpture Factory, Cork and The Pattern Exchange a group show at TBG+S, Dublin
