The Unseen

Friday, October 11th, 2013

Great project on the way from Gus Sutherland. It’s called ‘The Unseen’ a documentary on Detroit hip-hop producers. It features the likes of Dak, House Shoes, Slautah and loads more. Based on his previous documentary outing, ‘All Ears’, which focused on the LA beat scene (Ras G, Kutmah, FlyLo, etc.), this should be deadly (trailer below). Thing is, it ain’t finished yet, so in order for that to happen, we all got to chip in a little bit to help the project along (main cost would be flying a small crew to Detroit for filming). You can get behind the project here on Indiegogo, select an amount you want to donate, then POW! you will get to fund the film and DOUBLE POW! you will get a cool reward. It’s not like Fundit in the sense that it’s lall  or nothing, if the project doesn’t reach it’s total aim, they get to keep what has been raised and have to basically do what they can with it. So dig deep and help the heads in Detroit dig deeper, ye dig? (Ouch!)

Interview for Number Krunch

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

 

Rachel Bothwell from Number Krunch sat down with Shane McKenna and myself recently over a cup of tea to chat about DabbledooMusic, post-successful Fundit campaign. Here’s a quick snippet:

RB: So tell me what you’re trying to achieve at DabbledooMusic?

Shane: It’s a new method of teaching music in primary schools aimed at teachers, children and parents. It exists as a workbook that we self published last December and a free online resource, for use in the classroom or at home. It’s based around a new type of musical notation called graphical notation, which uses moving shapes and colours on a screen instead of classical notation, which uses notes and bars etc.

You can read the rest of Part One here and stay tuned for Part Two…

Thank you from Dabbledoo!

Fundit: UpStart

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Fantastic project here from UpStart which will see a vacant lot in Dublin’s city centre transformed into a park with a cafe, cinema and theatre, and generally bringing a hell of a lot of art to people in a very accessible way, but ONLY if they reach their funding target. It’s at 56% now and is climbing, but there’s only FIVE DAYS TO GO so please get behind this project by either donating, or sharing, or both. Thanks!

Reasons to Support Rabble

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

Donal Fallon from the Come Here To Me blog giving a few reasons to support Rabble and help with our funding campaign.

Rabble FundIt Campaign

Monday, April 8th, 2013

Today Margaret Thatcher died, and Rabble launched its FundIt campaign. Our last print issue was before Christmas. We’ve been working hard on getting this campaign ready in the meantime. We’re lookng for €9,000 to cover print costs for our next four issues, and really step it up in terms of the quality of the paper.

The response since we put out our first issue has been overwhelming, and I firmly believe that this is the sort of publication that the country has needed for a LONG time. For it to continue, we really need to get our readers behind us, and for a small contribution each, we can really get this newspaper growing and delve deep inna investigative journalism stylee.

In terms of the rewards for funders, my own contributions will include prints, workshops, DJ sets and murals for peoples homes. We’ve got 48 days to go, so please make support us and share this campaign as much as you can. Thank you!

Joinery Fundit Campaign

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

The Joinery opened in Dublin in 2008. It’s a DIY art space ran by a crew of volunteers who have helped facilitate the creation, performance and exhibition of eclectic art on an absolute shoestring budget. There really isn’t another space like it in the city, and to lose it would be an absolute shame. They’re looking for your support:

Our ambition is to see the Joinery continue as an uncompromising art space in this city and this Fund it campaign will help us enact our most challenging and engaging programme to date. This programme, which will have an emphasis on event-based works including performances, screenings, exhibitions, talks and new music, will involve a network of highly ambitious and professional artists, curators, performers, musicians, writers and thinkers. The Joinery’s 2013 programme aims to build upon our reputation as one of Dublin’s most eclectic art spaces; a place that many exceptional musicians and artists now view as a second home. This programme strand will continue to support artists; providing a critical platform for both artist and audience. This Fund it campaign will also enable us to support emerging artists as part of the ongoing graduate programme, offer a second year of residencies and further expand a distinctive programme of new music by pioneering musicians from both here and abroad.

The money raised with this Fundit campaign will also give the Joinery the time to seek solutions regarding its future as an independent, sustainable art space. We need your support to make 2013 and beyond happen at the Joinery.

There’s ten days left. If they don’t reach their target, it will be a huge blow to the art scene in this city. You can join the campaign and make a contribution here.
