“The world is a big changeable place.”
“Everyone I know is getting older.”
“How can we bring in a bit of fun?”
“I can’t do it on my own, I don’t have the resources, and I don’t know where to start.”
BUT… What if everything you need is already here?
Dublin’s Culture Connects invites you to share and learn at an upcoming Tuesday Information Exchange. On Tuesday evenings in November, we’re offering a chance to learn about how to start up a festival, make a community event happen, begin fundraising and find out about creative projects for older people.
Each Tuesday Information Exchange in November starts at 6pm and ends by 9pm. Sessions are informal and fun. And they’re free. You can pick just one or come to all! Refreshments are provided, you just have to bring a pen, paper and enthusiasm.
Tuesday 14 November – Introduction to Fundraising for Community & Arts Organisations
We’re delighted to invite small arts organisations and community groups in the Dublin City Council administrative area to take part in an introductory seminar designed to discuss, develop and enhance fundraising skills.
Ideally, have a look at this “Writing a Kick-Ass Marketing Plan” video before coming along:
This seminar is part of the Fundraising Fellowship, Dublin programme, a partnership between Dublin’s Culture Connects and the New Stream Fundraising Capacity Building Project operated by Business to Arts.

Tuesday 28th November – DIY Festival, 6.30pm-8.30pm
How can you make a festival or an event happen?

Based on feedback from these sessions, we hope to schedule similar sessions later in the year. Or you can call Dublin’s Culture Connects if you have an idea for one: info@dublinscultureconnects / 01 222.6705.
