Today marks the end to a very busy first week here at Axis. In the past week I have come up with design ideas for some amazing spaces at our Otherworld festival, I got to sit in on some meetings for Positive Ageing Week, which proved very interesting. I've also been given some projects to work on over the next few weeks, putting my marketing and communication skills to the test. But just because the work week is over doesn't mean the fun stops there! This Sunday will mark the start of the Axis x Fringe project which I am very grateful to be apart of. Axis X Fringe is a collaboration between the Dublin Fringe Festival, Red Bear Productions and Axis offering 10 young people tickets to see 7 shows in the festival, not only do I get to see some great shows but I'll be blogging about these trips too. Tune in next week to keep update with my adventures.

We were delighted to hear that the lovely folk over at the Bang Bang Café have raised funds to mark the final resting place of Thomas ‘Bang Bang’ Dudley, a much loved figure in the Dublin of the 1950s and 60s. Bang Bang roamed the streets with his ‘Colt .45’, a large key he carried at all times with which to host fake shoot outs. Great to see that Pearse St Library (Dublin City Public Libraries) are carefully looking after his 'Colt' for him too.
