GMIT PREMIERS EDUCATIONAL DOCUMENTARIES ABOUT RURAL COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT IN MAYO: Movieworld Cinema, Castlebar: Tuesday 3 June, 5 – 7.30p

Three unique educational documentaries about rural community development projects in Mayo, made by a visiting Dutch academic on GMIT’s Applied Social Studies degree programme, will be screened in Castlebar’s Movieworld cinerma on Tuesday 3 June (5pm).

The three 25-minute documentaries, which are shot in Islandeady, Bohola and Westport, were made by academic and filmmaker Dr Willem Blok from Leeuwarden, the Netherlands, when he was guest lecturing on the Applied Social Studies programme in the Mayo campus during the Autumn semester (2013).

His three films explore examples of rural community development, the first focusing on Jack’s Old Cottage (Islandeady), a small scale community development which preserves a disappearing way of Irish rural life, the second on the Arts Centre in Lismiranne (Bohola) and the power of music in the community, and the third on the theme of music in social care focusing on Western Care (Westport).

​ The second and third films are shot in co-operation with artists and musicians John Hoban and Isabela Basombrio Hoban who work in community and social care settings.

The screening of the three films takes place in Movieworld, Castlebar, Co Mayo, on Tuesday, 3 June, from 5 to 7.30pm. Admission is free.

The films will be of particular interest to local community development workers, social carers, musicians and anyone in the wider Western Care circle. GMIT is delighted to shows these films first to the general public. All are welcome.

Shamrokon - Europeon Science Fiction - Dublin - Exhibitors wanted - August 2014

I am organizing an art show on behalf of Shamrokon, the European science fiction, fantasy and horror convention, which comes to Dublin in August 2014.

There are four Guests of Honour. One of these is Irish artist Jim Fitzpatrick. I have been asked to set up a display of artwork in one of the main convention rooms in the DoubleTree by Hilton (formerly the Burlington Hotel), in Dublin. The Art Show will share this room with a Dealers section, which consists of tables hired by bookshops, comic dealers, independent publishers etc. The artwork must have some connection with science fiction, fantasy, horror and surrealism.

I have asked the committee to encourage Irish artists to display their work alongside Jim Fitzpatrick. The fee is €70 for 3 days to display art, plus 10% commission on each sale . This includes full membership for the week-end event, and an outlet to sell prints of your work at a Shamrokon art table. I can promise a display space for at least six pieces. The prints for sale at the art table is at the discretion of the artist.

The membership bookings have exceeded 750 to date, with over 150 rooms booked in the hotel (mostly for Americans). There is still 3 months to go.

Artists are not obliged to stand beside their work for the 3 days. Full membership means they can mingle with Jim Fitzpatrick, George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones), Michael Carroll (Judge Dredd) and attend the events taking place around the hotel.

Please check out the website at www.shamrokon.ie
