When is it happening? Saturday 14th Nov. at 1.30pm

Where is it happening? Patricks Street, Cork

How long will it last? Around 3.5 minutes

Why? To stand up (and dance a little) for the arts. And to bring fun and bewilderment to Patricks Street punters.

What do you need to do to take part? You need to come to two rehearsals at the newly revamped Savoy Theatre, Patricks Street on Wednesday 11th November, 7.30pm – 9.30pm and Saturday 14th November, 10.30am Then let Mr Blue Sky in at 1.30pm

Sign up for it now RSVP to letmrblueskyin[at]gmail[dot]com

This sounds like a bit of fun and sounds like it will make a point at the same time. Fair play to the Campaign for Arts for it! It will be a marked contrast to the disruption cause by the Union Protest on Friday!

For more on the National Campaign for the Arts, see their website, twitter and facebook. Best of luck to them!

Luxembourg in Video

Carmel has some videos from Luxembourg up on her blog, so I have robbed them in case you missed them! I of course am in them and the second video as me attempting Irish Dancing while under the influence. It really gives you a taste of what we got up to and why it was so much fun!

Part one: Presenting Our Online Identities Offline

Part Two: Intercultural Night

These videos reminded me of all the fun I had and what I learned! Thanks Carmel!
