Open Learning Ireland

Open Learning Ireland is a volunteer run group working to create an alternative educational model in Ireland. We want to create a new all ages education space in Dublin, where anyone can come to learn or teach anything that ‘takes their fancy’. To spread the idea, we’ve been running a series of PopUp learning days. The first as part of the Office Of Non-Compliance at the Dublin Contemporary 2011 Exhibition, and the most recent as part of the DIY Skillshare festival.

For more information check out or just drop by on the day.

Press materials (including high resolution images) are available at our website.
