A little inspiration for all of us, and for all who consider putting some of their work into the Open Season exhibition, go for it! All artwork has to be here by the 2nd of December to be ready for the opening on the 9th, and it promises already to be a great night out, but that will be a story for a later post!
And then… Ooops, I gave you the Rio Grande preview last week already, but it is only on THIS Tuesday the 22nd! Sorry about that, somehow I must have skipped a week in the diary! I hope nobody tapered to The Dock in vain, so far I heard nothing such like, fingers crossed… That means a bit of a copying/cutting&pasting job is due to tell you once again, this time with the right date attached!
It is again time for our Classic Film Club on Tuesday morning, our final film with Maureen O’Hara, this time alongside John Wayne in Rio Grande, another well-remembered classic by John Ford. Same as always, complimentary tea or coffee and bickies, and if my little camera arrives before that I will show you the buzz of the place on Tuesday at 11am! And make sure you don’t forget to tell the seniors in your life about it too, the Club turned out to be such a success, but the more the merrier all the same! Ah look, that is what I call a good kiss!
Saturday is Family Fun Day again; I heard that Laura will be making Christmas decorations with the kids, so feel free to walk in from 2pm onwards.
On the same day we have another little gem for you, IMRO will host a song-writing workshop for 12-18 year-olds in The Dock on Saturday, 26th November from 12pm till 6pm.
The one-day workshop is provided to young songwriters free of charge and will be hosted by singer/songwriter Luan Parle and songwriter/producer Gavin Ralston. The workshop will focus on song writing, production, performance, touring and the latest developments in the music industry. By the end of the workshop, the budding songwriters will have written, performed and recorded an original song collectively. This is a unique opportunity for young people to get hands on experience of the day-to-day work in the music industry, whether they aspire to be performers, songwriters, and producers or work in music administration. Bookings for the workshop can be made through The Dock Arts Centre box office on 071 965 0828, and further information can be found at our website http://www.thedock.ie/workshops-classes. Participants may bring musical instruments along to the workshop…
Well, what more can I add? If I’d be in that age bracket, I’ll be heading for that amazing workshop, but it looks like I’ll be bringing the kids to the decoration-making instead, there is a time for everything in life it seems…!
Have a good week folks, make sure you vote re the revealing of the Dock Blogger Face – three posts down, no login etc required, the poll is on for one more week only! If the Yes Votes succeed your Dock Blogger will be officially introduced at the opening of Open Season on the 9th of December, just before Ailie Blunnie will cast her spell on us again the same night at 8.30 in the performance space! If the No Votes succeed, well, I’ll be in the crowd as usual, trying to catch some news behind the scenes for you too!
