I’m resurfacing briefly to highlight a groovy new online initiative aimed at 13-25 year olds that warrants a definite look-see… YAM.ie (Your Arts Map) is a listings service that plots youth arts events in Dublin using Google Maps, including event details and interactive public transportation information. It also allows folks to spread the word about events via social media. A quick browse pulled up tons of great listings… how fab it would be for this to spread country-wide!
It looks like a great way for young people to find something fun and interesting to do, and for arts organisations to better advertise events and programmes of special appeal. The website is open to free postings from both organisations and individuals.
Kudos to South Dublin County Council, Dublin City Council, Temple Bar Cultural Trust and the National Youth Council (with support from the Arts Council) for seeing this through… I hope it sees lots of activity over the coming months!
