Happy Christmas & New Year

To reduce RADE’s impact on global climate change (and do our bit to save the planet!), this year we have minimised our print run, and instead have created an e-Christmas card wishing you good tidings ahead of the Christmas and New Year.

RADE started shooting a new film “Any Spare Change” this week, 29 January 2018.

 

Writer Rodney Lee is back, directing his new script about homelessness.  Also working with the RADE participants in the development and production have been Adrienne Greenhalgh , Emma Wall, Nelli Conroy and Jodi Jones  (1st Assist Director). Jodi will also be making a cameo appearance.  RADE has been delighted to welcome back Gary Boyd and Tomas Donaghty on camera, lights and sound for the production.  Filming has been going well and  the final product is expected to be every bit as good as the  very well received “Irish Life vs Tony.”

A huge thanks also goes to the Simon Community and St. Patrick’s Cathedral for their support with the film production.

Light Source: Stained-Glass Exhibition

The stained-glass windows were installed permanently in the OLV building following the successful exhibition in The Atrium in October 2014
IMG_5518
Light Source celebrated RADE’s 10th anniversary with a show that developed service-users’ visual-arts skills by learning the medieval craft of stained glass. Facilitated by stained-glass artist Peter Young, participants designed and built two large stained-glass windows which are now permanently installed in RADE’s premises, the OLV Building.

Before the installation, the windows were exhibited in their entirety in The Atrium, Wood Quay, Dublin 8, from 25th August to 5th September 2014. The exhibition also included artwork from participants. Dean Victor Stacey of St. Patrick’s Cathedral officially opened the exhibition.

Permanent Installation

Following the successful exhibition in The Atrium, the windows returned to the OLV Building and were installed in the main space downstairs. To mark the occasion, Lord Mayor Christy Burke officially unveiled the windows and praised the group’s work. These windows, which add a touch of colour and brightness to RADE’s home, are now the first thing participants, staff and visitors see on entering the premises.
