What’s On: Your IMAGE guide of things to do, see and enjoy this week

23rd Mar 2018

This week feels like a bit of an in-between. St Patrick’s Day has been and gone and we’re still holding on to the promise of an Easter long weekend. But if we are in between, we’re making sure to make it a fun place to be. This week sees the weekend being taken over by OFFSET, a creative conference at the RDS with an unbelievable lineup of speakers which many of us creative types will be heading to over the next few days. But if that’s not your bag, the week ahead is filled with equally exciting things to do around the city (including a couple of our own!), and you can exercise your creativity in a gallery or a flea market instead of at a conference with the pros.

Happy weekend from IMAGE.ie!

 

Tomorrow: Paint the walls at OFFSET’s Doodle Jam!

If you can’t make it to the main event, get your OFFSET fix in this after-hours party at HQ Gastrobar on Hanover Quay. With cocktails and new wave sounds from resident OFFSET DJ John Mahon from Telephones, it’s the perfect opportunity to let your creativity loose and draw on the walls of the bar. Illustrator Robert Ickis Mirolo will be in attendance too, to show you how to create the perfect doodle. How many times have you started scratching drawings on the walls after a few too many on a night out? Well, now you get to do it with permission.

 

Sunday: Pick up some bargains at the Dublin Flea Market

You may have noticed by now that I religiously include flea markets in my weekend guides, because who doesn’t love wandering around a selection of trinkets for the afternoon? Someone I don’t want to be around, that’s who. The Dublin Flea takes place on the last Sunday of every month in Newmarket Square and although you might not find that Chanel jacket for a tenner like Girlboss led you to believe, the characters of stallholders and fellow bargain hunters will more than make up for it.

 

This weekend: Get lost in Siobhan McDonald’s Disappearing Worlds

Looking to give in to your existential side this weekend? This new exhibition, Crystalline: Disappearing Worlds by Dublin-based artist Siobhan McDonald, focuses on our love of exploration and our endurance in extreme circumstances, showing images of beautiful landscapes through a new lens. McDonald has done continued work on the environment and the balance of humans and nature and it makes for some ethereal viewing. The exhibition is showing at the Taylor Galleries on Kildare Street until April 7th, but make sure to check it out this weekend ahead of the launch of the full-colour catalogue on April 5th.

 

On Tuesday: Find your success at IMAGE Young Businesswomen’s Forum

This may look like shameless self-plugging (and there is a bit of that) but this year’s Young Businesswomen’s Forum really is an evening to mark in your calendars. This year’s line-up includes CEO Nikki Lannen, Managing Director Róisín Lafferty and Screenwriter Stefanie Preissner. Each of these inspiring women will be chatting with our own Melanie Morris about their roads to success, the challenges of their industries and any practical advice they picked up along the way. All of that, plus the ticket includes a luxury gift – I’m sold.

 

On Thursday: Get your costume on at the Wes Anderson Party & Isle of Dogs Midnight Screening

Image: Facebook

If you’re into the surreal, candy-coloured world of Wes Anderson, you’ll no doubt be highly anticipating his latest movie Isle of Dogs. The Lighthouse Cinema, always dependable for amazing events, is holding a midnight screening of the new movie. The screening comes complete with a theme – costume party. So decide what Wes Anderson character you want to be and enjoy cocktails in the always-cool setting of The Lighthouse for a few hours before the movie begins.
