!Kaboogie 7th Birthday Bash Fri 16th Feb

Our lovely friends at !Kaboogie are celebrating their 7th birthday tomorrow night at The Twisted Pepper. A4 would like to wish them a HAPPY BIRTHDAY,  and a massive thank you for all their hard work, providing us with many of a dance-floor filled with great people and quality music over the years.

We would also like to thank them for all their help with A4 from its beginnings in 2008. Aul Sixfoot Apprentice is actually the dad of A4 Sounds and gave us our namesake!! Redmonk has been an A4er almost from the start taken part in numerous exhibitions both nationally and internationally and A-force is currently one of our resident members at A4 Towers.

If you are in Dublin, head down, it promises to be made of fun.

A4 Towers Memberships Available

2012-07-29 21.50.33We at A4 Towers want to open up our space so that more people have access to our facilities. As a result, we are rolling out a new type of membership which started Feb 1st, if you are interested please get in touch A4SOUNDS at gmail dot com or via our contacts page.

A4 Towers membership will include:
  • Access to our facilities which include a workshop, a darkroom, screen-printing facilities, desk space, woodworking tools, and an electronics bench. Members can book time on tools from 10am – 10pm, Thursday to Sunday each week..
  • Opportunities to exhibit work and take part in organising events
  • Opportunities to hold workshops and classes in the space
  • Reduced rates for taking part in training workshops and classes
  • Access to the online A4 forum to collaborate with other artists, musicians, etc.

Numbers will be restricted to a maximum of 30 people, to ensure that each member can get access to the facilities. Membership will cost €50 per month, which is very cheap compared to other art spaces in Dublin, but will help us to cover the costs of materials, bills, rent and buy new equipment. A4 Sounds is a non-profit organisation, and our main aim with this new membership is to build a community around the space and get a buzz going. We hope that this will lead to more collaboration between creative people in Dublin, as well as more play-dates!

If you are interested send us an email and we can arrange a viewing time. Buses which go near by are 9,16, 49, 83. You can also get 15 to Rathmines and it’s a 10 minute walk.

Thanks

A4 Team

We are looking for energetic individuals who are interested in artist led spaces and the possibilities for collaboration they offer. Unfortunately we are not looking for individuals who solely want to concentrate on their own practice, we are looking for residents who want to learn about and take part in the running and development of the studio and A4 Sounds.
We are an interdisciplinary studio and invite applications from a wide range of “artists” whether you work in education, engineering, computer programming, curation, music, TV, electronics, fine art or design etc it doesn’t matter, as long as you have a keen interest in collaboration and co-operatively run spaces.
Some info about us and the studio:
Resident membership of the studio is based on shared responsibility for the upkeep and running of the space, and involvement in group shows, collaborative projects and proposals. Our current members come from a range of backgrounds including visual art, music, engineering, education and community based work.
“The mission of the A4 Sounds art collective is to foster multidisciplinary collaboration, curate innovative participatory art events and broaden engagement through community arts education. The purpose of the ‘A4 Towers’ workspace is to act as a base for these group activities, as well as a resource for individual members to develop their professional practice.”
Have a look here for info about our facilities.
To apply please send us an email at a4sounds at gmail dot com with a statement of interest, (why you want to join A4 Towers specifically), artist cv and a few examples of your work (jpgs, pdf, or link to online portfolio). Application is based on interview and committee decision.
Thanks
