Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts, in partnership with axis, Ballymun and SIPTU, presents:

Changing the Story
axis, Ballymun
May 1, 2-5pm

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
Maya Angelou

Campaigns for civil rights and civil justice motivate much of global politics today. These campaigns can be traced back to the passion and subversive imagination of a generation whose formative political moment was forged in the radical ferment of 1968.
On the 20th December 1968 it was reported in the Irish Times that the Ballymun project, the model new town, was officially complete.
Forty years later, is the radical vision of 1968 exhausted or irrelevant? How might we continue Changing the Story?
Join us for an afternoon of reflection and radical optimism with local residents and artists living and working in Ballymun;
Ollie McGlinchey, (Ballymun Communications Manager), Stewart Dowie (Neighbourhood Arts Worker), Aine Rooney, (Ballymun Welfare Rights Co-ordinator), Colm Downes (educator), Dean Scurry (comedian / youth worker / artist), Aideen McBride (storyteller), along with poet and playwright Dermot Bolger, Professor Alan Read (Kings College, London), writer Evelyn Conlon and Little John Nee as he composes a new protest song for Ballymun.
The event will be followed by a reception. Tickets are free but must be booked in advance.
A free bus will depart outside SIPTU at 1.30 pm and return at 6pm.
