The Irish Architecture Foundation and ReDrawing Dublin present Urban Party
Wednesday, 9th March 2011
“The URBAN PARTY has invited 20 diverse and acclaimed ‘Dublin Voices’ to speak for just 3 minutes each on their vision for our city. That’s 60 minutes of fast moving and rotating urban perspectives on the future of Dublin.”
Urban Party evolved to become the beginning of a think tank, in which the people are central to creating perspectives to planning. A diverse range of speakers shared their visions for the city, and it fell on ears ready to listen and an audience ready for change. One audience member, Dutch Architect Jeroen Laven described what he felt was a ‘palpable anger in the air and intense passion’.
Food for thought in abundance, and the fast rotating panel of speakers captured the fast pace of City life, while simultaneously allowing us all time to reflect on what we want for the future of our City.
