We’ll be handing out paper masks at the door, creating silly visuals and provide you with party music for the night. The line-up will be announced over the next few days!!

We are inviting everyone to send us wolf images which will be incorporated into our awesome visual show!!! Whether they are drawn in ms paint, scanned doodles, collaged or for the more technically able; digital masterpieces, we want them all!!! All those submitted will get a few euro off the door and there maybe a prize for one of ye!!

We hope you all can come!! All proceeds go to paying off our scary big debt.

Become a Friend of A4 Sounds

A4 Sounds and its studio A4 Towers is predominately self-funded. We find it quite difficult to cover costs in all areas of our work, day to day studio costs, rent, bills, exhibitions and improvement of facilities. We depend on our artists, friends and general good will of the the public to maintain and develop the work that we do.

If you can afford to we welcome and greatly appreciate donations via paypal.

If you are a business and would like to sponsor us get in touch. In exchange for monetary donations, materials, equipment, venue rental or services we can place your logo on our site and acknowledge you as a friend of A4 and on relevant publications or projects.

If you have old equipment or materials that you are getting rid off, get in touch and we can take them of your hands.

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
