Container Hub


Temporary Places- what’s happening – September 2013

Charlotte Bosanquet: Centre for Creative ideas.

The Centre for Creative Ideas is a space where ideas are formed and discussed, a creative space for excellent ideas to happen. During the month of August The Centre for Creative Ideas is housed in a temporary portable structure in the Glandore/Skegoneill interface. The container houses materials both for research and practical use in the form of paper, pens, thread, rubber, sewing machines and tea bags.  It will be a space to come and meet and talk about the great energy saving idea that you have had or solar powered ice cream cart and perhaps in the process make it. The outcome might be a collar that walks your dog, an anti- bullying jacket or a teapot/toast-rack.

+ extras

1. Storage and garden container

2. Workshop container

Since early April, a small  shipping container is placed on the empty site at the Skegoneill/Glandore interface.

Although this strand of the ‘Temporary Places’ programme will only start in July, small actions, community activities, meetings and research should take place in and around the metal structure. These are understood as creative impulses to prepare and announce the summer programme through playful exercises in community participation, collaborative work and individual actions.

With the first, fairly shy tags on the container, it is time to decorate the metal box. Everyone who is interested in tags, graffiti, comic, wall painting or other forms of spray-can expression should come along for design and ‘colouring in’ workshops on a large scale.

Workshop, free and for everyone interested:

Container painting

Every Sunday in May.

Time: 1-3pm

Location: Container opposite Sina’s shop.

Project artist: Duncan Ross.
