Icon Factory

Icon Factory

Neighborhood cleanup is an one-day event. Working together can make a difference in our neighborhood. It helps to boost the pride and creativity, and helps to fight against crime. 

This is the third year for Starbucks Ireland! They were taking part in their community project. Thank you for Starbucks crew for joining us this colourful afternoon!

Thank you all amazing guests and art lovers for coming and creating this special evening! Thank you our in-house artists Mahua Le Meur for sharing your work! Exhibition will run until 19th of May. All welcome!

Na semana passada foi inaugurada na área do Temple Bar uma iniciativa muito bacana chamada The Icon Factory. 

The back lanes of Temple Bar might not usually be a place to hang out, but now perhaps you should ! 

The Icon Factory & The Icon Walk crosses the ocean and makes talk of it in the United States in the highly renowned THE NEW YORK TIMES in the Arts section

Vagando con rumbo incierto por las calles de Dublín, al más puro estilo Leopold Bloom, uno llega sin querer hasta el mural erigido en el nombre de su creador, James Joyce, en los callejones ruinosos y sombríos de Temple Bar. 

Brendan Behan's poster on a Dublin alley wall has a message you might want to send to the Minnesota legislature, or the U.S. Congress: "I have a total irreverence for anything connected with society except that which makes the road safer, the beer stronger, the food cheaper and the old men and old women warmer in the winter and happier in the summer." Roads, anyone ? Food stamps ? Heating assistance ? 

Down the laneways and back alleys of Temple Bar large panels and murals tell the stories of the greats of Irish fashion, music, literature, art, sport, comedy and more. This is the Icon Walk.

A small lane way that I randomly spotted on a walk through the city of Dublin ended up being one of my favourite parts of Dublin.
