workshop

The MART Academy

While MART as a collective has been about since 2006, their physical presence in Dublin is still relatively new. With their first studios in the old fire station only opening, last year, their empire has quickly grown, encompassing 3 different buildings, a multitude of studios, exhibition spaces, a market, cafe and performance venue and now MARTcademy, a one stop shop for budding, developing and established artists. Covering a wide range of artistic and creative disciplines, there’s everything from an intro to turkish art to singing for the terrified. And they’re such sweeties, they even promise tea and cake for participants (let’s be honest, that’s what we all want!)So try something new this autumn, and head towards Rathmines for a little MARTucation! / Beccy Fitzpatrick

performance

Irish Composers Collective

The Irish Composers Collective is raising its baton on 10 years of existence with a series of performances. A resource for composers straddling "the obviously prodigious talent, the rough diamond, the confounding outlier and the dabbling amateur", the ICC has supported them all. There'll be a lunchtime recital from soprano Elizabeth Hilliard and David Bremner performing new and existing works by ICC members, young pianist Máire Carroll makes debut with a tea time solo recital, Ergodos will be flipping one of Bach's best known chorales with an atmospheric production entitled I Call to You and rounding off the day will be The Laptop Orchestra hacking laptops, motion sensors, golf controllers and built-in cameras to create their unique sonic fusions. Bravo! Bravo! / Zach Joyce

exhibition

Solus

Shining a solo light on his work after recent group exhibitions, Solus brings his unique eye to bear on the street before a planned move to New York in 2015. Born to Win is an apt title for someone whose works have always touched on the fighter and the under dog. There's a glint of hope and defiance in the kid in the corner. Whether it's a wall, a shutter or a straightforward canvas, Solus is on the ropes for one last round here but the kid won't stay in the corner. Expect a deft one-two and potential knock-out before the bell rings. Towels, gumshields and water are optional but if you're one of the first 25 in the door you'll get a print for your support. / Zach Joyce

exhibition

Phoenix Rising

100 years ago, Dublin held a Civic Exhibition, spurred on by biologist, sociologist and planner Patrick Geddes, featuring everything from archeological displays to butter making competitions. Ireland was in a period of economic, social and political turbulence, as well as a housing crisis, with Dublin’s poorest living in dangerously overcrowded and dilapidated tenements. The aim was to inspire increased civic responsibility, repair and renovation of neglected buildings, and ultimately Dublin’s rebirth from the ashes. This exhibition echoes its predecessor as contemporary artists interpret this “phoenix of cities” and imagine utopia through sketches, photographs, sculptures and video stills. The show seems particularly relevant, given the economic crisis, recently announced plans for the regeneration of the Hugh Lane’s neighbor, Parnell Square, and Dublin City Council’s housing waiting list at nearly 20,000 applicants. / Olivia Rutter

theatre

The Last Post

The Last Post is back in its original venue, the Mart - an old fire station in Rathmines that now mainly acts as an art gallery and market space. A product of the young and achingly innovative Just the Lads theatre company, the show is inspired by a series of interviews and encounters with postal workers in Ireland. Audience members will be met at the back door by a fast-talking postman and led through the unusual and artistically-decorated building. They will then listen in on the stories of the postal workers, follow them as they visit the home of one of their favourite customers, and be sent on their own postal route. The Last Post is a unique experience and a quaint reminder of simpler times. And who knows? It may even inspire you to write a letter to that German pen-pal you haven’t contacted in ten years (sorry Olga). / Kayla Walsh

Who You Calling Apathetic? A Generational Assembly

As a semi-professional bleeding heart liberal, few things wind me up more than politicians pontificating on our supposedly lazy, flat-screen TV watching generation. It's even more of a kick in the head when it's the supposedly more progressive parties putting the boot in. Even though I'm very much of the “Vote or Die” or “Vote or Hear Me Bitch at You About It” posse, it's easy to understand apathy when, to be blunt, you've been sold up shit creek and then being told it's actually your own fault. But as Churchill, a man who could turn a phrase put it “It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government, except all those others that have been tried”. So it's not great but it could be worse and we need to make it better. So if you are young and civically minded, heed the noble call to get to The Abbey's Generational Assembly. / Kate McEvoy
