There’s no need to use too many words to explain this beautiful project (that we can enjoy within the Fringe Festival) especially after checking the images and pictures they are publishing.

Dear Salthill is a community memory project established in March 2013. The project aims to gather fragments of memory attached to Salthill.The focus of the project is collective memory of the location.

It explores the collective community memory of the location, past and present. The process is being documented through the use of social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

You can go to the exhibition until next Friday July 26th, and have a look at the pictures (like the ones here) of their website:

Speakers on the hour and funky tunes by Mr Whippy Soundsystem. Did you go last friday to the Summer Block Party, with Mr Whippy’s music? It was such a great idea we are waiting for a second edition!


An Mheitheal Rothar (Galway Community Bike Workshop), The Kitchen Galway and The NUIG Ecology Society have come together to organize the first Disco Soup in Ireland, a community-run event that aims to serve a free hot lunch to the participating public while raising awareness of the issue of unnecessary food waste in our society.
