A little introduction.
Street Feast is Ireland’s annual day of street parties & community lunches. We invite you to host a party with your neighbours on Sunday 12th June. Register your feast on this website and we’ll send you out your free party pack to help you get started. This is the 7th year of Street Feast; last year in 2015 almost 20,000 people took part.
This year: 2016 & the 1916 Centenary
We’re delighted to announce that Street Feast is an official celebration of the State’s 1916/2016 Centenary Commemorations.
A little bit about who’s behind Street Feast
We started out as a team of volunteers, passionate about community. What better way to bring community together than through food? We teamed up to see the simple idea of Street Feast reach its full potential. Since then, we’ve learnt lots from experience. We now have a team of coordinators, advisors and volunteers who make Street Feast ‘happen’.
We first started in 2010 – the idea was conceived over many conversations as we tried to figure out a way to reduce isolation, our environmental impact, and boost community resilience. The team were Andy Thompson, Jerrieann Sullivan, Joanne Doherty, Zand Craig & Samuel Bishop. Over the years the team has changed as people have had family & work commitments. In 2014 we had a brilliant new Street Feast team: Sam, Peter, Ciana & Jillian made Street Feast happen for a 5th consecutive year. In 2015 we teamed up with ChangeX to increase impact yet again.
We’re based in a small studio on Old Kilmainham Road, Dublin 8 in the MART creative studios.
Street Feast is run COMPLETELY voluntarily. We’re always open to fresh ideas and new energy. If you’d like to get involved in making Street Feast happen, whether it be as a volunteer, intern or collaboration, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Design & Website
We’ve been very lucky to have collaborated with great people to create a colourful, bright and fun brand & website. This was all down to the great work by the very wonderful Atto Partners, back when Street Feast started in 2010. They were just brilliant. You should definitely say hello to them. Since then we’ve worked with the lovely Marta Sikora, Matthew Byrne and Francisco Javier Rodas who’ve worked on maintainting the site. We work closely with ChangeX who now manage the registrations and are an inspiring and rapidly growing platform of social solutions.
Street Feast has received amazing help and good-will from so many people. Here are a few of the good’uns, in no particular order!
