Ranelagh Arts Festival 2014

 

Urban Greening Project Ranelagh Village

 

Ranelagh Arts Festival has joined forces with Dublin City Council’s  ‘Friends of Green Spaces’ initiative to create innovative green pockets in Ranelagh Village.  Members of Ranelagh community, local businesses, gardeners and artists will collaborate to transform and enliven the streetscape. We aim to promote creativity, civic engagement and environmental awareness in an urban setting.

 

Join us for the Irish premiere of 'A Wasteland Harvest' by dramatist Miriam Gallagher, an 'eco' play, a Ranelagh residents garden tour & talk on garden design by Marion Keogh, a Bloom award winning designer & founder of Bloom Fringe Dublin, a bonsai tree exhibition & talk by Michael B. McAuley, allotments and water conservation ideas on the TriAngle, edible vegetables adorning street posts and the regeneration of a laneway into a cultural space.  A number of locally based artist will reclaim and paint doors as part of an outdoor visual arts exhibition, the doors will then be displayed in a green space in Ranelagh Village. Other unusual and playful activities will sprout up to delight and enchant.

We hope to remind everyone of just how important plants are to our lives and that it is possible to grow them in the smallest and most unlikely places in an urban environment.
