8 DEC 10 A SPECTACLE OF DEFIANCE AND HOPE WORKSHOP A4 Towers, Dublin
During her placement with Rialto Youth Project A4er Lisa Crowne facilitated a workshop at A4 Towers. Participants created a number of cardboard houses which were added to all those created by the youth project which formed a giant heart float for A Spectacle of Hope and Defiance 2010.
“The Spectacle of Defiance and Hope is a broadly based alliance of Community Organisations from Dublin and beyond. In 2010 a large number of groups came together to protest and challenge the programme of cuts that were imposed on the youth and community sector and draw attention to the savage economic injustices that were taking place in Ireland. The Spectacle is for an Ireland of true equality in the conditions of people’s lives. In December of 2010 we organised the powerful and provocative Spectacle of Defiance and Hope event in which community organisations from all over Dublin participated.”
