With the news of an apparent return to gorgeous weather this weekend, we could not be happier that it is Friday right now. If you’ve managed to bag a ticket for any of the various gigs taking place around the city or just want to head to something a bit different, this week’s what’s on is exactly what you need. Happy heatwave weekend from IMAGE!

This weekend:

Be in awe at Inspire Fest 18

Tech, science, art, design; it’s all there at Inspire Fest. The two-day event in the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre sees speeches and discussions from inspiring people in all areas; from philanthropy to coding, STEM to cartoons. Tickets also include entry into the event’s exclusive Fringe festival, which will give you a chance to dance it out afterwards.

 

On Saturday:

Sing along with Picture This (and Clean Bandit and J.P Cooper and Little Hours) at the RDS

If you don’t act like you don’t like Picture This, but then sing your heart out whenever they’re playing, are you even Irish? As part of their Summer in the City series of concerts this week, the RDS is housing the Irish songsters, along with Clean Bandit, J.P Cooper and Little Hours on Saturday night. Tickets are somehow still available, as are spots at The Killers and The Chainsmokers later in the week.

 

Tuesday:

Become a social media queen at IMAGE Mentoring Workshop with Lauren Murphy

If you work in… pretty much any industry, you need to be up to speed with social media. It’s often the first point of contact between your business and your customers and the power of a good social media strategy can’t be underestimated. Lauren Murphy, head of Social at advertising agency goosebump, will be taking to the stage next Tuesday in the Merrion Hotel to make you an expert of all things social in an hour.

 

All week:

Celebrate Pride at Dublin LGBTQ Pride

It’s Pride Month all June and now it’s officially Pride week in the capital. As well as the beloved parade through the city centre, there are loads of events going on around Dublin throughout the week to educate and celebrate LGBTQ life. 5k runs, karaoke sessions, Pantibar… the list is endless.
