Hi all!

Great news! On Monday morning, I am invited to Dublin City FM (at 10:45) once again to talk about the “Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events)”. It will be only a relatively short interview and I am not sure what the reach of the station is at the moment, but it is the first opportunity this year again to spread the word about the Dublin Event Guide and I really appreciate these opportunities. The goal is to reach 50,000 subscribers and I better get going. :-)

If you know anybody in the media world, in radio, TV or newspapers, that would be interested mentioning or featuring the Dublin Event Guide, please let me know (dublineventguide@gmail.com). And maybe you have some interesting ideas how I could spread the word better? I definitely need some suggestions to jumpstart the 2015 growth of our community.

And remember, the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) only exists because you told other people about it and because a few generous people support it with donations. Keep doing exactly that, please! Tell all your friends and family and colleagues about it and – if you can – please also help with a donation.

The Sponsorship I was able to get from some companies helps hugely to take a certain amount of financial pressure off me, but it is not enough. The cost are still above that AND I need some money to make some changes to the system that I use and need someone who is good at CakePHP programming and SQL databases. That will cost! So please continue your financial support. You can help here: www.perfectresults.info/donate.htm I am also looking for some additional corporate sponsors as well, if you know someone, send them my way. :-)
Regarding your donation, I am suggesting the super low amount of just EUR 1 per month. These EUR 12 is just 2 pints and for the equivalent of 2 pints you get 52 issues full of information about free cultural events. That’s DEFINITELY worth 2 pints, isn’t it!? Please…and Thanks! :-)

And finally – I can’t say it often enough: Please help spreading the word about the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events). Your friends can easily subscribe at www.dublineventguide.com and they will get a weekly e-mail magazine with all the free events in Dublin if they subscribe. They don’t have to pay a cent for that and their e-mail address is completely safe with me! More than 23,000 people receive the Dublin Event Guide every week and we are more than 55,000 people at the Dublin Event Guide Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/DublinEventGuide Check it out and click on LIKE when you are there.

And this is a great opportunity to help the Dublin Event Guide for absolutely no cost to you:

Without putting your hand in your pocket (for the Dublin Event Guide) at all you can help by ALWAYS using the ad links in the Dublin News Section and the ads in the Dublin Event Guides when you buy/order goods. If you buy goods immediately (in the same session) after clicking on a link/ad that you find in this e-zine/newsletter (Groupon, LivingSocial, Amazon, Book Depository, LastMinute etc), you help the Dublin Event Guide everytime. This is how it works: The company you buy from (Groupon, Amazon, LivingSocial, Book Depository etc) registers that you came to them via a link from the Dublin Event Guide and they show their appreciation by giving a small commission (5-8%) to the Dublin Event Guide. This might only be 30 cent a go, but if you did that for all online purchases and if lots of people used it, then it could make a big dent into the EUR 190 needed. Use these links as often as possible it doesn’t cost you a cent and you help big time!

Have an event-full weekend and week,

–Joerg

Feel good slot

The “Feel Good Slot” at this place in the Dublin Event Guide is to share some inspirational, motivational or thought provoking quotes, stories or video clips. You wonder why I added this section to this e-mail magazine? If your week was great, you might not need it, but most of us had some challenging moments in the last week and there could be more in the coming week and this section is for the people that want to overcome the hurdles, achieve more and remember that despite all, life is great!

Today’s feel good slot is once again just a quote, but sometimes there is so much depth in these quotes that – if you take the time to think about it – the power only reveals itself bit by bit. Today’s quote is:

Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come.

Good or bad or neutral, all that has happened has formed and influenced you, and you have grown with every single event…to prepare for even bigger events. Have a great week!

Support

This part is important to “keep the show on the road”:

To cover the cost for the Dublin Event Guide I need your help and every week generous and nice Dublin Event Guide readers help with a donation.

Last week Ivan S. and Donald M were so great to support the Dublin Event Guide with a donation. I really really really appreciate all the help and keep in mind that without donations there won’t be a Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events): Your donation will ensure that the Dublin Event Guide will continue arriving in your Inbox every week and every donation will benefit EVERY Dublin Event Guide reader!

The cost for sending the weekly newsletter is approx. EUR 190 per month and a donation from you of just EUR 12 per year will ensure that I will be able to pay the bills.
Has the Dublin Event Guide helped you to find events that you otherwise wouldn’t have known about, or have you saved money by finding great free events? Then go to here and give something back!

I appreciate ANY help: EUR 12 would be great (that’s just 25 cent per week!), but even if it is just the price of 2 pints it will help.

You can donate online by following this link to the PayPal&CreditCard donation page. If you want to transfer your donation directly to my account, just send a mail to dublineventguide@gmail.com and I will send you the details.

EventbriteThe main sponsor is Eventbrite and their support is hugely appreciated! Eventbrite enables people all over the world to plan, promote, and sell out any event, and has sold over 200 million tickets and registrations worldwide, totalling more than $3 billion in gross ticket sales. Eventbrite is free for free events. The online event registration service makes it easy for everyone to discover events, and to share the events they are attending with the people they know. In this way, Eventbrite brings communities together by encouraging people to connect through live experiences.

All events listed in this Event Guide are free of any admission charges (or at least appear to be free) unless otherwise stated. I try to find confirmation in all cases and do my best to double-check the information. However errors can happen and therefore no promise for correctness can be given.

Joergs Picks

This section is intended to provide some help in picking and choosing from the huge number of events by sharing with you what I will/might or would do. This is not a “best of…” list and if an event is not listed here, it by no means implies that the event is not interesting. Instead my “picks” are just based on my personal preferences. All events mentioned here are described in detail further down.

This weekend I will choose the re-enactment of the Napoleonic War scenes in the National Museum as my pick for Saturday and for Sunday I have selected the Chinese New Years Festival Carnival on Meeting House Square and the Dublin Flea Market.

During the week, keep an eye out for AONTAS Adult Learners’ Festival events if you like learning (and trying) new things.

Dublin news

Help the Dublin Event Guide! It won’t cost you a cent!

Do you enjoy free events? Does it help you to find out about all these free events simply in one e-mail magazine or on one website? Does the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) deliver all this for you and maybe even more? In that case, you probably also would want it to continue forever, right?

To achieve that some money is needed. Donations are a great help, but not everyone feels they can donate at the moment. So here is the solution: If you could help with a donation without having to pay a cent from your own money wouldn’t that be cool? You can!!

When you buy books online, buy them from Book Depository or from Amazon and use these links to go to the website:

Book Depository
Amazon

And when you buy from Living Social or Groupon use these links:

Groupon
LivingSocial

When you buy holidays (from Lastminute.com, Expedia or Hotels.com) or other products buy them via clicking on the links below:

HMV | O2 | Vodafone | Pixmania
Expedia
| Lastminute.com | Hotels.com

When you click on the link and then buy, your books/products/holidays etc cost exactly the same as if you went to the website directly. But if you go via the links above, the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) will get 5-8% of what you spend as a commission. That’s not a lot, but if you and lots of other people used that link every time, it would amount to a fair amount of crucially important money. Use the links often, actually EVERY time you buy from the relevant site, not just once!

Giving money for free! That’s how easy it is. ;-) THANK YOU!!!

And if you want to donate money directly, then you can do that here: www.perfectresults.info/donation.htm

Dine In Dublin

“Dine In Dublin” a week long food festival in Dublin’s City Centre returns again from 23 Feb – 01 March. A whole range of restaurants have specials on the menu and also run special offers and there are some additional events like cooking demos and classes, tastings and food with music. As long as they are free, they are listed in this Dublin Event Guide, for all the rest and the list of participating restaurants, check dineindublin.ie/food-festival/overview/

AONTAS Adult Learners’ Festival

The yearly AONTAS Adult Learners’ Festival takes place from 23-28 February and the theme this year is “Learning: A Lifetime’s Work”. There will be lots of free events across the whole country, promoting learning opportunities for adults.

During the festival there are 38 events in Dublin City, 9 in North Dublin, 5 in South Dublin and 3 in West Dublin and you can find the events here. A selection is also included as separate listings in this Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events). From tours of St. Patrick’s Cathedral and March Library via Genealogy lectures at the National Library to an introduction to photography or social media, there are a good amount of classes available.

The topics could maybe be a little wider spread, I couldn’t find anything for people that are interested in sports or music or science or business or literature or languages in the list of free events, but I’d say AONTAS would be very happy if they could increase the variety for next year and maybe you can offer your help teaching/lecturing, if you have the skills.

www.adultlearnersfestival.com/

Opportunities

The former “Opportunities” section is now Eventbrite’s section to highlight some of the events they – as the main sponsor of the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) would particularly like to bring to your attention. The vast majority of the events listed here will be free, but if it is a really good event, there might sometimes be a non-free event in the list as well.

== EVENTBRITE PICKS ==

There are some Eventbrite Picks sprinled in the normal listings this week and this special list here will return next week.

And you can find more events at www.eventbrite.ie or download the Eventbrite app to find events around you.

Exhibitions

Based on your feedback, I have decided to do the following with the Exhibition section in this newsletter from now on: I will provide you with a link to a near-comprehensive listing of exhibitions provided by www.visualartists.ie . For me to list all exhibitions would only be doubling their good work and would be an inefficient use of my resources. The link is www.visualartists.ie/category/listings/dublin/

On top of that I will every now and then include here a small selection of exhibitions that either are not mentioned in the Visual Artist listing or are note-worthy to be mentioned separately.

Plant Places by Roisin Murphy

He is responsible for the iconic Curvilinear Range of glasshouses in Glasnevin as well as the glasshouses in the Winter Gardens in Regent’s Park, London and the Palm Houses in Belfast and The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
A series of walks will also take place telling the story of the rich architectural legacy that is in the Botanic Gardens and will highlight the extraordinary story of the Irish man Richard Turner who was part of the flourish of botanical architecture in Europe at that time. www.botanicgardens.ie/news/events.htm

“The group exhibition shows the diverse practices of recipients of the UCD Science Artist in Residence Award. UCD Art in Science is a dynamic practice based programme that brings artists and scientists from undergraduate to professional levels, together in collaborative work. Since the pilot residency in 2012, the artists in residence have engaged with scientists in neuroscience, cognitive science, marine biology, plant biology, geophysics, paleobotany, advanced optical imaging, spectroscopy and astronomy. Their conversations have led to an inspiring body of work, through a mutual openness to communicating across the traditional boundaries of the disciplines. The diversity of the work reflects the open and dynamic nature of the project and includes, sculpture, installation, painting, drawing, video and performances. We will also launch our programme of public events and publication to accompany the exhibition.”

Admission is free.

Lifelogging – Science Gallery Exhibition

12:00 – 18:00, Sat 21 Feb

Science Gallery, Pearse Street, TCD, Dublin 2

“Lifelogging – Do you count?” is the title of the newest Science Gallery exhibition, which started on Friday 13 Feb and will run until 12 April.

Lifelogging is part exhibition, part Science Gallery Lab where you can take part in research projects and it deals with us tracking ourselves, measuring things we do and logging everything from heartbeat to heartbreak.

Get a taste for tracking as you play games with your emotions, use your brainwaves to sort files, generate music wearing sensors, and explore a virtual world filled with real dreams and memories.

The exhibits at this exhibition are fascinating: There is George Reynolds who recorded his health on paper since 2003. A sensible and understandable version of lifelogging. On the other end of the spectrum is Alberto Frigo who takes a picture every times he holds an object with his right hand. He started in 2003 and plans to continue until 2040. On the surface it doesn’t make sense AT ALL. But when you talk to him, you find out that there is a surprising sense to what he does.

The exhibition contains 16 exhibits some so odd that you should get the super helpful and knowledgeable Science Gallery mediators to help you understand what is behind it.

In one area, every week another group/organisation will involve you in their work (the Lab part) and I will explain their project in a separate event posting in the weekly Dublin Event Guide.

Admission to the Science Gallery is free. Opening hours are Tues-Fri 12:00-20:00 and Sat+Sun 12:00-18:00.

Your Social Media Self – Lab in the Science Gallery – Lifeblogging

12:00 – 20:00, Sat 21 Feb

From Tuesday, the Lab in the Science Gallery that accompanies the Lifeblogging exhibition will look at “Your Social Media Self”.

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, Skype….we have them and we (mostly) love them, but what do they say about you?

Researchers at the ADAPT Centre, Trinity College Dublin have teamed up with AYLIEN, experts in Text and Sentiment Analysis, to create Bigfoot – a system that captures your online persona and determines how much of your data is out there.

Lifelogging – Science Gallery Exhibition

12:00 – 18:00, Sun 22 Feb

Science Gallery, Pearse Street, TCD, Dublin 2

“Lifelogging – Do you count?” is the title of the newest Science Gallery exhibition, which started on Friday 13 Feb and will run until 12 April.

Lifelogging is part exhibition, part Science Gallery Lab where you can take part in research projects and it deals with us tracking ourselves, measuring things we do and logging everything from heartbeat to heartbreak.

Get a taste for tracking as you play games with your emotions, use your brainwaves to sort files, generate music wearing sensors, and explore a virtual world filled with real dreams and memories.

The exhibits at this exhibition are fascinating: There is George Reynolds who recorded his health on paper since 2003. A sensible and understandable version of lifelogging. On the other end of the spectrum is Alberto Frigo who takes a picture every times he holds an object with his right hand. He started in 2003 and plans to continue until 2040. On the surface it doesn’t make sense AT ALL. But when you talk to him, you find out that there is a surprising sense to what he does.

The exhibition contains 16 exhibits some so odd that you should get the super helpful and knowledgeable Science Gallery mediators to help you understand what is behind it.

In one area, every week another group/organisation will involve you in their work (the Lab part) and I will explain their project in a separate event posting in the weekly Dublin Event Guide.

Admission to the Science Gallery is free. Opening hours are Tues-Fri 12:00-20:00 and Sat+Sun 12:00-18:00.

This is a debate on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) with Constantin Gurdjiev, Economist and Frank Keoghan, General President, TEEU. It is hosted by Joan Collins TD.

Unfortuantely I was not able to find out who is organising this event and since the website didn’t explain if it is free or not, I am not too sure on that either. However I would expect that the event is free.

This is odd

Please note: This section contains observations taken from the world I live in that strike me as odd. I express my personal opinion and you might not share it. ;-) If you are easily offended by opinions that are not identical with your own, please don’t read this section and I am VERY serious about that!

MY event is the best event the world has ever seen!

I love enthusiasm and passion and people that are enthusiastic or passionate about what they do are sooo much easier to work with than people that constantly feel bored or depressed at work. In the event world, you expect that Press Releases are at least moderately enthusiastic, but often there is too much navel gazing going on. Which means that people involved in an event/organisation start believing their own bs a little too much and forget that not every stone they touch can turn into gold.

I regularly get Press Releases that sound like the headline: “My event is the best event the world has ever seen!”. In cases like that the enthusiasm is noted and fully appreciated, but don’t be surprised when I am softening the boisterousness a little in the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events).

This week it was a “Dine in Dublin” listing (run by dublintown.ie ) that made me giggle: On Tuesday an nice event takes place in the context of Dine in Dublin, when a Luas tram will be at the St. Stephen’s Green Luas stop and food samples from three restaurants will be served to everybody in the area. Great idea nd great event, but the enthusiasm of the author of the listing made it a little bigger than you would have expected and called it a “a once in a life time dining experience”. ;-)

Sure, STRICTLY speaking, this could be true. If next year OTHER restaurants do something like that again or if a Dublin Bus instead of Luas will be the stall that serves the food, then the event this year will be a once-off event forever. Or if a participant won’t survive tomorrow. :-O
But we usually connect a different meaning with “a once in a life time dining experience” and – while the three restaurants will most likely serve really nice tasting food – eating a little food sample on the street of Dublin might not be seen by everyone as a “once in a life time dining experience”.

Maybe tooooo much enthusiasm!? …but it was of the well meaning sort! :-)

Have an event-full weekend and week,

It is sent for free to anybody who is interested and if you want to be added to the mailing list or know somebody who would like to receive this guide, just send them to www.dublineventguide.com, where they can subscribe.
