Draíocht Nominated for Pride of Place 2013

June 19, 2013

Fingal County Council has nominated Draíocht for the Pride of Place 2013 competition, under the category of ‘Community Arts Initiatives’.

The judging took place recently over a two and a half hour period, starting with a 30 minute presentation outlining details of Draíocht’s many projects, events and community participation initiatives.



The judges were then introduced to all staff members during an informative tour around the building, taking in both theatre spaces, both galleries and the artists studio. They then had a chance to meet with local artists, clown choir participants and D15 Youth Theatre members and leaders, rounded off by a live performance by Jessy Rose, one of Blanchardstown’s newest songwriting and performing talents. Snapping it all on the day was local Irish and internationally renowned photographer Tom Lawlor.



The Pride of Place competition is all about acknowledging in a meaningful manner the fantastic selfless work being done by people in communities all over the island of Ireland, specifically recognising the involvement of the local community in all aspects of promoting social cohesion, involvement in planning, the promotion of heritage and environmental awareness. The focus is on people coming together to shape, change and enjoy all that is good about their local area.

The competition is hosted by Co-operation Ireland under its Local Authority Programme in conjunction with the all-island Local Authority Steering Forum comprising officials from authorities in both parts of Ireland.

Local Authorities from practically every county in Ireland have nominated groups in their local area during 2013. Draíocht was delighted to be nominated by Fingal County Council and given the chance to showcase what can be achieved when people work together to enhance parts of their area for the good of the whole community.



Emer McGowan, Director of Draíocht said: ‘Artist Tracey Emin once said it perfectly when she said that ‘Art can absolutely change the world’. We believe this in Draíocht and put our local community at the centre of all our endeavours’.

Tom Dowling, Chairman of Pride of Place, said: "The competition is about showing respect and inclusion for every sector in our communities, young, old, rich or poor and creating communities to which the people are proud to say they belong".

Awards take place in Derry in November so cross your fingers for Draíocht!

Fingal County Council has also nominated the Seamus Ennis Centre in Naul under ‘The Gathering – Cultural Tourism’ Category and Rush Town under ‘Populations of over 2000 people’ Category.


UPDATE:
Draíocht is delighted to have won a runners up prize of €500 at the awards ceremony of 700 guests in Derry on 16 November 2013. Thanks to everyone for your support.

HALLELUJAH! DRAÍOCHT’S COMMUNITY CLOWN CHOIR

October 1, 2012








WITH VERONICA COBURN - THEATRE ARTIST IN RESIDENCE 2012/2013

JOIN US ON SATURDAY 03 NOV 2012 // 2-5PM // FREE INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP

Draíocht is delighted to announce its Theatre Artist in Residence, Veronica Coburn, for 2012/2013. The position funded through The Arts Council and Fingal County Council will enable Draíocht offer a year long drama & music project for people age 16+.

A Clown Choir is a group of people who gather together to sing and laugh – to sing in celebration of what it is to be human and to laugh at the ridiculousness of the world we live in. If you are sociable, like to sing, like to laugh and are open to trying new things then WE WANT YOU! You don’t have to be a good singer to join Hallelujah! You don’t have to be a performer to join Hallelujah! You just have to be interested and willing. The ethos of Hallelujah! is accessibility, inclusivity and artistic excellence.

Hallelujah! will be a choir like no other. One part play to two parts song; one part concert to two parts clown theatre. Nobody will be asked to do anything that s/he is not comfortable with but for those who are interested in stepping into the spotlight then there will be ample opportunity for them to do so.

Hallelujah!’s weekly rehearsals will begin in 2013 but on 03 November 2012 there is an opportunity for you to come along to see what it’s all about. You will be introduced to the basic concepts of Clown Theatre and you will learn Hallelujah!’s signature tune - Charlie Chaplin’s ‘Smile’. Hallelujah!’s first major work in 2013 will be The M50 Symphony – A Symphony For Human Voice & Car Horn.

To register your interest please fill in an application form, available from Draíocht’s Box Office or by email to teresa@draiocht.ie or download it here ...
Deadline for applications EXTENDED TO: WED 31 OCT 2012
