The pictures below are of the old Head Space in Squat City, Grangegorman. Our plan is to do it up and open it as Dublin 7’s first radical social space, called the Violet Gibson Centre. Violet Gibson was an Irish woman who took a few shots at Benito Mussolini in 1926 (hitting him in the nose!), and the space is named in her honour.
The place needs a bit of work: cleaning, painting and fixing so we’ll be working on it all day Saturday and then have some drinks/music/food/whatever after in the evening. We think it’ll be a really great space when it’s up and running and we’d like as many people and groups to be involved as possible.
We’d appreciate any and all help we can get. We’ll be kicking off at 10am with breakfast, so come on down and join us if you’re free, and bring anything you think might be useful. Oh and wear paint-friendly clothes! See you all Saturday!
