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

club night

AmsterDADDi XXX

DADDi is a turning out to be a very fun, well-attended gay night for Bears, their many, many sub-spieces (Otters, Cubs, Musclebears, Polar Bears etc.) and their numerous admirers. Tonight in the (bear) pit that is the Turk’s Head, the crew are hoping to turn up the heat, and lower the lights, to present AmsterDADDI XXX. Aiming to re-create the Dutch red-light leather bar vibe, there will be a “Wear What you Like” dresscode and Amsterdam’s own DJ Max Del Principe will be on hand to bang out Circuit-style house tunes. Expect bare chests and bear bellies. Also in the pipeline (ahem) is a sexy floor show from a visiting ‘adult entertainer’ Filipe Ferre and there will be plenty of drinks promos. You’ll have to postpone your hibernation for another weekend at least! Woof! / Mick Connell

festival

Bram Stoker

This fledgling festival gets new fangs and a whole new salvo of puns under the helm of new creative crew The Performance Corporation. This is one of those box clever tourism ideas where a definable brief is open to fascinating and fun interpretations. There's a Vampwire over Wolfe Tone Square allowing people live out their caped action hero fantasy moment (waiting list), the Domestic Godless brigade promise Blood and Earth when they host a interactive cookery demo, Glaswegian artist Claire Biddles brings her Goth Karaoke machine to Meeting House Square where you can shake down some Siouxsie and the Banshees while Macnas provide the perfect antidote to the excesses of the weekend with their parade entitled The Summoning on Monday. A festival well worth sinking your teeth into. / Zach Joyce

The Way He Looks

Daniel Ribeiro’s coming of age film begins with best friends ‘Gi’ and ‘Leo’ lazing by the pool, wishing for drama, romance, or just someone to kiss. There are small hints that Gi may have a crush on painfully oblivious Leo as they run their fingers through the water… before you realise that the protagonist, Leo, is blind, when Gi walks him home and then uses his keys to open his gate for him. She seems to be Leo’s only defender at school until a new boy, Gabriel befriends the pair and the drama they were wishing for begins. With muted colours, Belle and Sebastian dotting the soundtrack, and slightly too good looking teenagers, this film sucks you in and brings you back to awkward adolescence to the point you’re crossing your fingers and squirming in your chair hoping for a happy ending just as much as Leo is. / Olivia Rutter

Cabaret Life Drawing

You might not have drawn still life since Junior Cert art, when your lack of sense of proportion and depth of perception conspired to create a monster of gothic proportions, but that's no reason to eschew Dr Sketchy's cabaret life drawing sessions in Alfie Byrne's at the Conrad Hotel as part of the Bram Stoker Festival. Use your creative licence and allow your pencils to do the talking. I'll be concentrating on improving my shading (or more to the point, trying to disguise absentminded smudges) and trying to persuade the model to obscure their hands (unless they do me a favour and wear mittens). It's fun, frivolous, but stay safe and bring rubbers. / Kate Coleman

exhibition

Describing Architecture

The airy, high-ceilinged Octagonal Room of the City Assembly House, with unfinished pinky walls and the last of the summer sun streaming in, is definitely a place to make you appreciate architecture. A diverse group of multimedia displays fill the room with work from Irish and international architecture students, architecture firms and artists, all contemplating the theme ‘memory and place’. They range from videos, to poems written from the perspective of buildings, to a study on the eurythmy of familiar Dublin locations. The exhibition stirs up that feeling you get when you enter a very old building and you can feel all the other people and things that have stood exactly there, or you drive by your old house and you feel a weird pang that strangers are living within walls that absorbed so much of your past. / Olivia Rutter
