We’re ALL volunteers and we’re all working hard at the moment, and it’s bleedin’ deadly fun. So let’s give it up for the Granby Park massive and meet some of the team…
Simon has come all the way from Wales to launch and co-ordinate Trade School Dublin (exactly what he’s doing in this pic).
Magical Miky, our gardening co-ordinator, is somehow making green trees appear where there was once rubble and grey.
Technician Barry gets down and dirty with the help of some brilliant volunteers.
Ampitheatre volunteer Kiru belies his hippie tendencies by getting stuck in to some hardcore admin.
Ayelet seems to be attempting to talk to a cement mixer. Someone give her a day off, or a coffee, or something, quick.
Artistic organiser Annie and her right hand man Vinnie have a bite to eat in between jobs. Seen here through a piece of art which will displayed in the park (you’ll have to come down to see what it is).
Really…?! You mean we…?! No way…?! Meetings have been getting more and more intense over the last few days, as the facial expressions of intern Naomi, project co-ordinator Liam, artistic organiser Annie and procurement officer Richard demonstrate here.
How happy and lovely do Claire Louise and Miky look?! Feel the love by volunteering at Granby Park this week!
Magdalena and Jean, Dublin Trade School volunteers, attentive and amazing as usual.
The road to Granby Park is long and winding and filled with amazing folks.
Site man Sam gets serious.
Plans and idea are turning into sweat and mud every day.
The Café crew, seen here making notes, are soon to be making yummy food.
The amazing Kate, one of the Granby Park community engagement volunteers.
Site man and general Granby Park super-hero Sam may be up to his neck this week but at least he’s still managing to put stickers on his face (yes, that’s the park coming together in the background).
The Trade School posse will facilitate brilliant workshops like knitting, photography, capoeira, MC-ing, song writing and much more. Book to teach/attend here (no experience necessary): http://tradeschool.coop/dublin/class
More meetings! And then more meetings!! The themes of which range from stressful, to scary, to intense, manic, funny, productive, busy, constructive, positive, giddy, abstract, biscuit-fueled…
We really need more volunteers on the ground this week in preparation for opening on Thursday, so if you have a spare hour or two please get in touch! firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you all SO much!
