    Culture and the city: the debate

    Fiona McCann

    Here ye, here ye, funders, artists, public representatives and citizens of Dublin: get thee to Meeting House Square next Wednesday for a public debate on questions of culture and the city. The debate will take in a range of issues, among them the control and regulation of space, and citizen involvement in such. If you’re a little shy about airing your views at so public a forum, fear not: all audience members will be given a mask on entry to ensure anonymity, in the hope that this will promote some plain speaking from the masses. The place? Meeting House Square in Temple Bar (there’ll be a marquee roof covering, so no rain-checking). The date: Wednesday, August 19th. The time: 6.30. The price: Free! For more information, see www.templebar.ie.

      What a tremendous idea! Perhaps attendees could dress up gaily and exotically as well to bring some culture to the debate about culture?

      Mise: Ain’t it though? I like the idea of a masked debate – though my hair would be a bit of a giveaway.
