We are having awesome fun working on the public relations for Culture Night Dublin.
This is the second year that CultureHead have headed up the marketing for this project and for this year's event we held the programme launch at Grand Canal Square in Dublin's Docklands.
The event involved a press call and ceremony featuring The Lord Mayor of Dublin Caroline Conroy, this year’s Culture Night Dublin Ambassador Nialler9, musician Tadhg and performers from Niki Collier's Children of Sir Live installation.
We were delighted with the response to the event: making afternoon news headlines on RTÉ Radio One followed by an interview with Maria Moynihan Lee, the national Co-ordinator of Culture Night and the Culture Night Dublin ambassador Nialler9.
RTÉ News sent Fergal O'Brien along to shoot the event which was later featured on the RTÉ One News.
Our photographer on the day was Julien Behal and his image of performer Vitor Bassi from Niki Collier's Children of Sir Installation made front page of The Irish times the day following the launch...
A second image from the launch was featured inside the paper, illuminating an article which featured the highlights from this year's Culture Night Dublin programme...
