Mongolian Folk Drawings Exhibition

27 March 2014

Opening reception

This exhibition comprises old and very old drawings from Mongolia. Some are fragments, others are single leaves from sutras; they include meticulous manuscripts and casual sketches. Most are related to Tantric Buddhism, but there are also astrological charts, sheets of musical notation, a small portrait, some animal drawings, and a picture of a temple. Exoticism is part of their charm, but that doesn't fully account for their appeal. These ephemeral drawings might normally have disappeared without trace, and for that very reason - the fact that they have survived - they are curiously evocative of distant thoughts and feelings.

Ballymum Book Exchange

6 March 2014
Time: 09:30

Book Exchange is a monthly event that offers over 1,000 free books for the residents of the community to take home and swap for their own pre loved books. We also have a daily Book Exchange at the Ballymun Whitehall Area Partnership Office.

Mission
The concept of Book Exchange is to promote reading in the heart of the community. With growing numbers of visitors at our monthly event commenting on the books they have read, their favourite authors and books they hope to find, this service is very much appreciated.
Book Exchange now has more than 300 visitors each month, our female visitors make up for 60% and our male visitors 40%.

Description
Ballymun Whitehall Area Partnership established Book Exchange in February 2009. For the past four years the people of Ballymun / Whitehall and surrounding areas have attended and enjoyed this free service at the monthly event in the Ballymun Civic Centre.
The Partnership distributes a myriad of adult and children’s books free of charge with the concept of promoting reading in the community. Visitors to Book Exchange can take as many books as they desire and donate pre loved books either at the monthly Book Exchange or at the Partnership Office. Book Exchange attendees are mostly regular visitors who say they attend every month. However each month there are also new visitors who discover it as a result of having other business in the Civic Centre or because a friend has suggested to them that they attend.

Trade School- Food shopping and cookery basics

8 March 2014

So many of us are eating more and more rubbish rather than cooking at home. This can be for many reasons including a lack of skills and knowledge, lack of time or even a lack of interest to name a few. My class will tech you how to plan your food week. This means, I will teach you how to sit down and work out a weekly menu for you and your friends or family. I will teach you how to think of dishes you like and have time to cook on a budget that suits you. I will give you recipes for these dishes as well as tips and advice on how to get the most out of a limited number of ingredients, which is especially handy if you are on a tight budget. If you have no idea what dishes to make then I will teach a selection of dishes I have found to be popular. Finally I will teach you how to do a grocery shop on a budget that suits you, which will save you a lot of money when shopping. The aim of my course if to help people to learn the basics and how to create new and exciting dishes without breaking the bank or taking up all of your time.

The concept of Book Exchange is to promote reading in the heart of the community. With growing numbers of visitors at our monthly event commenting on the books they have read, their favourite authors and books they hope to find, this service is very much appreciated.
Book Exchange now has more than 300 visitors each month, our female visitors make up for 60% and our male visitors 40%.

Ballymun Whitehall Area Partnership established Book Exchange in February 2009. For the past four years the people of Ballymun / Whitehall and surrounding areas have attended and enjoyed this free service at the monthly event in the Ballymun Civic Centre.
The Partnership distributes a myriad of adult and children’s books free of charge with the concept of promoting reading in the community. Visitors to Book Exchange can take as many books as they desire and donate pre loved books either at the monthly Book Exchange or at the Partnership Office.

Fail better

4 March 2014

The goal of FAIL BETTER is to open up a public conversation about failure, particularly the instructive role of failure, as it relates to very different areas of human endeavour. Rather than simply celebrating failure, which can come at great human, environmental and economic cost, we want to open up a debate on the role of failure in stimulating creativity: in learning, in science, engineering and design.

Donegal ETB Adult Learner Fair 2014

22 January 2014

Donegal ETB is organising an Adult Learner Fair 2014 which will be taking place in the Mount Errigal Hotel, Letterkenny on Wednesday, the 22nd of January, from 11am to 3pm.

For many adults in the County, the Adult Learner Fair is one of the most important annual events in the education calendar.  This year is the 11 th anniversary of the Fair and the 1st one under the auspices of Donegal ETB, the new state body in Donegal that is charged with bringing together for the first time, adult and further education and training.

We have decided to focus again this year on making the exhibition of education, training and support organisation our best yet where over 60 organisations will be providing information and advice on courses, training, education and support covering a range of programmes from return to learning through to access to third level education and beyond “we are really excited about this years event and we hope that the Fair will inspire adults to make informed decisions about their future - for those who need a little help in deciding what they would like to do experienced Guidance Counsellors will be on hand to point people in the right direction” says Seán Debney, Adult Guidance Co-ordinator with Donegal ETB.

The Fair will be of particular interest to those who are facing an uncertain time or are recently unemployed, those who are interested in returning to learning, maybe for the first time since leaving school, or for those who are on a course and want to find out where to go next. It will also be a great opportunity for those who are considering a career change or who want to improve their current job prospects.  The Fair is a showcase of the wide range of life long learning possibilities.

This class is all about writing – no matter what your level, whether it's for work or fun. We write and read everyday; send emails, letters, text messages, online tweets. Sometimes we lose sight of the basics of writing and why we do it in the first place. This class will go through sentence structure, style, common errors, and you'll leave with writing tips you can practise everyday. We'll look at good and bad examples of writing, and if there's time, we'll write our own story.

National College of Ireland - CAO Open Day

19 January 2019

Attending an open day is one of the best ways to get a feel for a college, its courses and the general atmosphere on campus. We like to think NCI is a pretty happy place, but come and get a feel of it for yourself, before you fill out your CAO form.

With taster classes, course stands, and competitions throughout the day, the event promises to be not only educational, but also a whole lot of fun. The gang from Spin 1038 will be on campus to help create a buzzing atmosphere and there will be music, craic and games a-plenty. NCI is one of the few educational institutes to offer guaranteed accommodation to first-year students, and the open day offers the chance to tour the on-campus student apartments.

Most importantly, though, you can find out about our full-time courses in business, computing, psychology, marketing, HR, accounting and more. Chat to lecturers and staff, meet the students’ union team, learn about clubs and societies on campus - and find out why our graduates consistently top the charts in terms of employment attainment, compared with other third-level institutions in Ireland.

Go with the flow - an art experience

6 March 2019

It's an art workshop where participants are encouraged to explore the use of paint and ink in a relaxed atmosphere with the emphasis on allowing the flow to decide the outcome rather than a set idea.

The first 30 minutes is spent applying some acrylic paint to paper and rolling threaded bars through the paint whilst listening to music. This allows the left side of the brain to free up and the outcome of the pictures become dependent on the experience of the rolling method and the colour choice of each individual.

We then move on to using alcohol ink on yupo paper. Alcohol ink is a beautiful medium to use .
The yupo paper is non porous which allows the ink to flow freely and acheive different effects depending on how it is applied. When dry it maintains its vibrant colours and could be framed like a stained glass object to allow the light to shine through.


Both of these methods can be benefical to anyone who finds holding a pencil or paintbrush difficult as they are not an essential tool

'Censored' Free Public Lecture Series

2 October 2014

‘Censored’ is a series of eight free evening lectures, running on the first Thursday of each month, from September 2014 to August 2015. The advent of printing in fifteenth-century Europe meant that texts, ideas, and opinions could be reproduced and diffused on an unprecedented scale. In response, most European countries established new institutions, laws and other mechanisms to censor the press. Ireland was no exception. This series will look at the ways in which the press was censored in this country from the arrival of printing in 1551 to the late twentieth century. Speakers will discuss literary, political and religious works that have been censored; consider the ways in which printers, booksellers and authors were reprimanded for publishing controversial texts; and reflect on the various ways in which press regulation has changed over time.

Part One: Lectures 1-4

‘Preserving the minds of the lower orders’: censorship and freedom in early modern Ireland
Prof Ray Gillespie (NUIM)
Thursday 4 September, 18.30

‘Regulating the printed word and the tongue’: censorship in seventeenth century Ireland
Dr Eamon Darcy (NUIM)
Thursday 2 October, 18.30

'False, scandalous and seditious’: Politically motivated press censorship in early eighteenth-century Ireland
Dr Suzanne Forbes (UCD)
Thursday 6 November, 18.30

The Control of Print in Eighteenth Century Ireland
Prof Jimmy Kelly (St. Patrick’s College, DCU)
Thursday 4 December, 18.30

Details of ‘Censored’ Part Two (Lectures 5-8) will be included in our February - July 2015 Event Guide.
