A big thank you from The Icon Factory to all the supporters, public passer-by, performers and volunteers, who came out in their droves yesterday despite the cloudy sky for the CULTURE & ARTS FESTIVAL 16.
In music they say the debut album is nearly always best and the second one is a very hard follow up. Not always true though! we thought yesterday was a brilliant day and we enjoyed it a lot.
Terry McMahon, actors Maurice Dunford, Emmett Scanlan, Johnny Elliot and Tony Murphy joined in the festivities today. A fantastic short play performed on The Icon Walk 'THE PASSING" with Shane Laird and Laura White and written by Alice Kinsella.
The spitting rain and blustery wind only added to the atmosphere of the poetic and music filled day yesterday at the third Saturday of the CULTURE & ARTS FESTIVAL 16 and what a day it was.
It is our great pleasure to invite you all to join our August Festival Project: Use The Lanes, Walk The Lanes, Love the Lanes.
What an amazing day! Friday the 3rd of June saw The Icon Factory with the help of staff from Starbucks and The Hard Rock Cafe give the Icon Walk it’s annual paint face-lift and clean-up.
Thank you so much to the Starbucks and The Hard Rock Cafe volunteers for their time, enthusiasm and energy – painting of the lanes completed in less then 2 hours! Last years record was beaten!
We were delighted to introduce Minister Humphreys to our art and cultural project, talk her through our history, our mission and give her a tour of the Icon Walk.
What an amazing team! Thank you to the Starbucks volunteers for your time, enthusiasm, and also your energy – painting of the lanes completed in 2 hours only!
The Icon Project got some good news recently. After careful negotiation, we have managed to lower our basic expenses for being here which released funding that now allows us to start some renovation works and expand and improve our exhibition area. As a charity, The Icon Project has a precarious existence in these tough times, so we like to share our positive experiences with you when they happen.
