axis Online

#axisonline is a new season developed by the axis team to try1 L  1 and bring as much of our supports, work and programme online during these strange times.

#axisonline is also a way of us staying in touch and collaborating with our community in Ballymun and the wider areas we serve and engage with.

Through #axisonline we are also opening up our archives across social media highlighting our own work and the work of artists we work with and admire

#axisonline is an opportunity to take stock of where we are at right now and innovate around mechanisms for the public to be creative.

#axisonline is a way of us collaborating with and highlighting the great work that is being done by artists and arts centres around the country

#axisonline is an opportunity to highlight the importance of the live and tangible arts in our lives and in society, and in their enforced absence look at reframing relationships and the way artists engage with the public

Come take your place. You can still Dream Out Loud.

We are trying to keep #axisonline free to avail of and use but if you feel you can donate to the axis arts development fund you can do so HERE via our donate page

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.
