Inner City Street Fest is a one day intercultural arts festival in that will take place in Smithfield Plaza, celebrating cultural diversity in an interactive manner. It will showcases the wide variety of arts and culture Dublin has to offer having become multicultural, allowing audiences to ‘travel the world’ within this one city, on one very special day.
The festival, now in its second year, is based on a framework of community development collaborative involvement and socio-cultural engagement and numerous groups take part in the creation of it.
“The aim for the festival itself is to have attendees interacting not only with the artists involved but with each other. As well as all the live music from around the world which will be on stage, we are also planning workshops and fun educational activities in our ‘education zone’, enjoyable laughs through relaxed group exchanges in the ‘comedy picnic’ tents, traditional food exchanges to bring people together without the need for a common language, inter-generational ‘story telling’, family play-dates with interactive story telling where children can socialise and mix with each other, free dance lessons, bartering skills exchange, informal traditional music sessions…and many more activities and interactions.”
