Happenings run instant pop-up cultural events in Dublin, Cork & Limerick. We animate city spaces, pairing creative and spontaneous events with strong social values. On fine weather days we organise instant outdoor cinema, music, yoga and a diverse range of events in parks and public spaces. Our events are alcohol free and we operate on a leave-no-trace policy. There is always an inclusive and friendly atmosphere and we try to build a strong sense of community to foster the public’s engagement with their public space. We believe that by running these types of events that are fun, healthy, and engaging with strong socially responsible values for living - that it influences people to bring that message home.
Founded in 2009, Happenings run low impact, socially responsible events in public spaces throughout Ireland. Since its inception, we have focused in particular on animating city spaces with creative and spontaneous events around Dublin, Cork and Limerick cities that include open-air cinema screenings, yoga in the park, music gigs, inspiring talks, and family days out.
