show & tell creative conference, smock alley theatre, dublin
Show & Tell is a creative conference and Christmas Design Fair taking place in Smock Alley Theatre on Saturday 19th of November by Dublin City Council and the Local Enterprise Office. Tickets are €40 and are available here. As part of a series of talks taking place on the day, slow:series has assembled four stellar speakers to talk about themes along the slow spectrum. Kathy Scott of The Trailblazery and Census of the Heart will speak about the power of slow. Social campaigner Ruairí McKiernan will talk about how to take a slow, compassionate approach to internal and external criticism. Sunday Times journalist and author Eithne Shortall will talk about shifting gears between writing for work and writing for literature. Dave Smith of Mabos will talk about how to navigate creative change.
Dave Smith has had a long-standing affinity with creative culture. It began with the inception of his advertising company, micromedia.ie, designed to promote indy culture & arts. This led to founding & curating Kings of Concrete festival for 7 years which in turn led directly to the creation of Mabos, a multi-purpose arts warehouse space in Grand canal dock. The closure of Mabos, despite garnering huge support, presented a unique situation of forced change. Dave will tell his ideas on how to navigate change. Where does the energy flow when the channel goes? How can we move forward with purpose?
