Monster Truck Gallery in Temple Bar are using the new fundit.ie site which is an online initiative providing a platform for people with great ideas to attract crowd funding (similar to kickstarter.com). Monster Truck are looking for funding to set up a video projection screen on their gallery window located at 4 Temple Bar. It is proposed that it will be a new visual arts space in Dublin, providing artists working in moving image a space to show their work to the thousands of people who pass by every night.
Temple Bar, once purported to be the Cultural Quarter in Dublin, is now more infamous for tacky tourist shops, awful bars, even worse buskers and raucous hen and stag parties. I truly hope Monster Truck gain the funding they need through this initiative as it will being back some much needed culture to the city centre. Donate to their project here.
