Gurriers – Block T – Good Friday


UpStart is a non-profit arts collective which aims to put creativity at the centre of public consciousness during the Irish General Election Campaign in 2011. We plan to do this by reinterpreting the spaces commonly used for displaying election campaign posters in Dublin City.

The objectives of UpStart are to encourage a debate on the role of the arts in this state. Our aim is to highlight the importance of creativity and ingenuity when society is in need of direction and solutions, and to emphasize the value of the arts to public life.

We believe that the future development of the country requires a healthy cultivation of the Arts.UpStart comprises artists and writers from Ireland and abroad and are non-aligned to any political party. UpStart respects and follows Dublin City Council litter regulations and operates within the requirements of Irish law.” Upstart website.

Above is one of my images I submitted to the upstart campaign.
