One of the best creative spaces we have in the city, sadly had to close their doors a few weeks ago.
Housing over 70 creative studios and workshop facilities in Smithfield, Block T released this statement on their social ahead of the closure:
Our current model, in which we are providing subsidies and programming for creative workspace, is no longer viable in the growing market, therefore we are revisiting our strategy, facilities and offering.

Since closing the doors in Smithfield, the folk behind Block T have been working away trying to secure a new location. And today we received some great news that Block T have found a new home in Basin View, Dublin 8.
However, in order to make the of their new home, they're calling on the public to donate what they can.
This is a real opportunity for people to act, to intervene and to support something special in Dublin. Our target in this crowd-funding drive is €15,000. This will provide us with a vital springboard to support some of the costs involved in setting up the new facility for the public.
We ask you to consider making a donation in return for a unique reward and encourage you to share this webpage as widely as possible. We believe that every form of support from you, whether it is big or small, is an investment in your creative community and will allow BLOCK T to continue its work of providing a community space for creativity, sharing, learning and expression.

So, whether you have a fiver or €50 to spare please give a little something to support this extremely worthy creative cause!
