 95A1061What an absolute pleasure to welcome First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon to Axis earlier today.

Poetry for breakfast and an on stage musical showcase were the order of the day. A fantastic opportunity for Ballymun, our young people and indeed axis. We spoke about this wonderful spirited community and axis’ work to ‘creatively drive change’.

All part of a special collaboration with St Patrick’s Festival. The Words That Bind Us is a project between Scotland and Ireland supported by the Scottish Government, British Council, Scottish Poetry Library & Culture Ireland.
