Skillshare Weekend

You are invited to a weekend of workshops, talks and films to be held in Seomra Spraoi in Dublin from 16th-18th November.

The purpose of the weekend is to get people interested in activism from various backgrounds and groups to meet up, get to know each other and learn from the experience of the current Gluaiseacht activists and others. We hope to create enthusiasm for the various campaigns and some formal and informal networks which would kick-start some serious activism through Gluaiseacht and each other.
