Fire performing is where a performer uses a fuel to create a spectacular visual effect, usually with objects (e.g. staff, poi, hula hoops) dipped in fuel and lit on fire, but it can also be fire-breathing or body burning. Whatever form it takes, it’s hypnotic! Performers will create a choreographed piece to their chosen music – it’s an opportunity to experiment and to showcase their passion and skills. Firebytes Part I is in Dublin, but is open to all fire artists. If you wish to apply, the deadline is February 19th, application form HERE.
Gaelic Woodland Project are a registered charity run by skill-sharing volunteers, committed to creating ecologically complex native habitats in Ireland. They have just used a loan to buy land in Mayo to rewild with native species and ecosystems and now need funds to pay back the loan. This land will then become a community hub where people can come to learn about Irish ecology, engage with nature and become effective stewards of this beautiful island of ours. More info about their work is available HERE.
Mud Island Community Garden are a volunteer led community garden in Dublin’s North East Inner City. It was developed on a derelict site that has been turned into a beautiful, rich ecosystem and a community hub. It has raised beds for vegetables, fruit bushes and trees, a polytunnel, a flower garden and a sitting area. Mud Island is farmed collectively and the produce shared. Read more HERE.
