Phizzfest has always aimed to create links and conversations between the often disparate communities of Phibsborough. The last five years has seen a growing pride and sense of place, a shift in what is perceived possible. This more coherent voice coincides with a critical time for the area. The Local Area Plan has recently been readopted by Dublin City Council and will be subject to amendments. We Need to Talk About Phibsborough - A Vision for the Future aims to bring together interested individuals and sectors to find a way forward, together, towards creating a workable and flourishing urban space.
A number of presentations will be made on the night, highlighting the findings from two Phizzfest Visual Arts Projects - Put Yourself in the Picture and Your Phibsborough - Your Call. Produced in consultation with Phizzfest, DIT MA Visual Communications students will showcase their ideas to "Rebrand Phibsborough". Contributions will also be made by the Phibsborough Business Association, and we will have an Update from the LAP Consultation Group.
(This event coincides with the upcoming consultation process on the Phibsborough and Mountjoy Local Area Plan and the Local Elections)
