EVENT ADMINISTRATION / PARTICIPATION
In June 2016 I co-ordinated the APEP input in the inaugural UCD Festival with Emmett Scanlon, Hugh Campbell, Rebecca Patterson and Katie O'Neill. My role was to organise a panel discussion on the Housing Crisis, help coordinate an exhibition of M.Arch work and liaise with the UCD Festival committee in event planning.
COMMUNITY SERVICE
FINDING HOME: CoolockIn 2016 our M.Arch group, Finding Home is based in Coolock and engaged with the Irish Housing Network and their support group based in Coolock. Our students are mapping the experience of homelessness and presenting their responses for feedback to clients of the Irish Housing Network in a live-project format. My role is co-ordinator of the group and a tutor in the module.
CONSULTING / ADVISORY
Mapping Towns Project in collaboration with Offaly County Council.A programme was designed to enable communities in 5 towns in Offaly to use their embedded knowledge to map their towns with the assistance of local architects who acted as mentors and facilitators in the process. The project was part of ENGAGE and was supported by the Engaging with Architecture Scheme supported by the Arts Council.
