Site the 'Packet and Tripe' and Getting to know the Street

The SpiritStore crew introduced ourselves at a public meeting on Catherine Street, attended by managers and owners of business on the street. A look at our previous project at the Sarsfield bar helped to give a flavour of how we work. This is a collaborative project, so while we talked about the types of events SpiritStore could broker/offer/support, at this meeting the street traders and Spiritstore started to get to know each other and to explore the potential of a weekend cultural festival together.

We gave a presentation on our last project and introduced the concept of filling the streets places and spaces with cultural events for one weekend. We intend to have a blackboard on the side of Frenchs to give details on meetings etc.
