Are you involved in a campaign in your community?

Join us for an All Ireland Community Campaigns Gathering
Saturday 26th of March 2011 10-5pm Seomra Spraoi, 10 Belvidere Court, Dublin 1

This is an open invitation to all community led campaign groups. By coming together we can share our experiences and find out how we can support each other to win. It is a free event.

You and your group are invited to come together for a day with other community led campaign groups to:
* Learn about each otherís struggles and find common issues
* Share what we have learned in our campaigns
* Discuss how we act in solidarity with each other
* Participate in a skills workshop around a common challenge (eg. Dealing with the Media, Dealing with state agencies & the legal system, How to keep your campaign going, Basic tools for working together as a group)

The event is being organised by people active in a number of different campaigns including supporting the community under threat from Shell in Mayo. This event will be a neutral space and the aim is to support each other and share strategies. It is not a space for winning people over to specific campaign agendas or any party political groups.

Venue: Seomra Spraoi, 10 Belvidere Court, Dublin 2. Seomra Spraoi is inspiring example of a community centre run entirely on donations.
Food will be by donation. Please contact if you have any special dietary or mobility requirements. Let us know if you will need child care for the day as this can be arranged at the venue.
The venue can hold approximately 50 people.

Please contact if you have questions, are interested in attending or to book a place.

Please find poster attached, forward this to any one who might be interested.
Hope you can make it,
Jerrieann and Kate
