Burning down the temple

In an article entitled Burning Down the Temple (2003), Director of the Project Arts centre Willie White discusses the role of Arts in the community and comments on a then recent conference held in Ballymun’s Access Arts centre: The Role of Arts Centres in Civil Society

White comments:

The location of the symposium in Ballymun was potent. All around us were derelict concrete tower blocks, evidence of the failure of a utopian planning ideal that had not taken into account the ’existing habits of living’ of citizens.
