Seomra Spraoi

…is a focal point for action, a place to perform, a space to be creative, and perhaps most importantly of all, a place for people of different backgrounds and nationalities to gather, get to know each other, and have discussions (and even lively arguments) about anything, from politics to the music of Stevie Wonder.

Picture
Urban Farm will be Growing Food on a Dublin city center rooftop with indoor aquaponic allotments for all season growing    
The idea is to convert a negative space into one that creates a tangible benefit for the community 

In 2012 Urban Farm secured Workshop & Rooftop space at The Chocolate Factory, a new creative community developing in an old factory in the heart of Dublin, where we are researching and demonstrating intensive urban growing techniques, growing food, keeping fowl, fish and bees. We have begun to host events & community groups and provide hands-on workshops that teach responsible food production, carpentry, energy-saving systems, ecological cycles, and community self-sufficiency  observing organic & pesticide free practices. We go beyond the normal timber yards and builders suppliers, all materials used are salvaged from waste, meaning most supplies used in the production of the farm have been diverted from landfill, de-constructed & up-cycled on site.

    Dublin’s independent spaces: where to from here?

    Over the last eight years or so a number of new, independent spaces have appeared across Dublin – Seomra Spraoi, Block T, Loom Studios, Market Studios, Supafast, Dubzland, Mabos and many more. These generally consist of groups of people opening up buildings in order to do what they want. This might be as simple as wanting a space to work, or a place to hold gigs and meetings or a place to show films and eat food together. Usually these spaces cater for many different activities, activities which are otherwise difficult to engage in due to the high cost of rent in the city. In other words, these spaces are practical responses to the limitations generated by the ‘development’ of the city over the last number of years.

    Dublin’s autonomous social centre
    Seomra Spraoi is an autonomous social centre in Dublin city centre. It is run by a non-hierarchical, anti capitalist collective on a not-for-profit basis. It hosts workshops, gigs, political meetings, language lessons, film screenings, cafes and lots more. The centre seeks to be a hub of positive resistance in a city and society where public spaces have been eaten away by consumerism, property speculation and the culture of the car.
    Seomra Spraoi is a focal point for action, a place to perform, a space to be creative, and perhaps most importantly of all, a place for people of different backgrounds and nationalities to gather, get to know each other, and have discussions (and even lively arguments) about anything, from politics to the music of Stevie Wonder.
