Myself and professional ballerina Zoe Ashe-Browne are in our last week of crowdfunding for a short film we are making. The film combines narrative ballet, an original soundtrack composed by Cloud Castle Lake and the City of Dublin. Our visual love letter to Dublin city, has only TWO days left to reach it’s fundit target.
We’ve gotten so far, with so much support, now we need to get it over the line. I thought maybe some if your readers would have enough interest in the project to help us out.
“I’m an architect and tutor at the School of Architecture, University College Dublin. Together with a few colleagues, I also edit a quarterly journal called 2ha which takes a particular interest in suburban space. Last year, we managed to raise enough money (via Fundit) to publish our first #6 issues. Since then 2ha has developed as a project, having been selected to take part in the international, touring Archizines exhibition as well as the 100 Archive here in Ireland. We’ve presented and chatted about all things suburban at Body & Soul, Offset and TXFM. We also recently edited last week’s issue of Le Cool. 2ha has recently returned to Fundit.ie to secure funding for 4 more issues [details below]. Thank you.”
Would you like your child to learn music without having to learn music?

Musician/music teacher Shane McKenna, writes:
From my experience, tradition musical notation is not suitable for either teachers or children in today’s classrooms. It is a complex, abstract way of composing and performing music, which is very useful to professional musician, composers and theorists but not very relevant to primary school children or their teachers.
We have created a new multimedia method of teaching music to children through a combination of words, animation, illustration activities, performance and creativity.
The system is based on a collection of free online resources at DabbledooMusic.com which has been visited by over 12,000 people in the last year, all over the world, including 3000 from the UK. We also self published an activity book for children last Christmas.
The project is a collaboration myself and street artist and educator Killian Redmonk. We believe this is the most accessible creative and beneficial way to learn about music and are currently running a fundit.ie campaign to raise money to upgrade the free online resources, into a fully interactive experience.
