Olivier Grossetête presents

The People Build

Irish Premiere

Audiences are invited to take part in a spectacular architectural event devised by the French artist Olivier Grossetête. Over four days, thousands of cardboard boxes will be transformed into the building blocks of a democratically assembled building, created solely through human power and collective endeavour.

The public watches in amazement and play a formative role as an extraordinary new structure rises from the ground. Once the structure is completed and admired, the audience join forces in a massive celebratory demolition as the cardboard building comes tumbling down.

The People Build has captured the imagination the world over from Australia to South America and Asia to Europe.

Workshops are being held in Bailey Allen Hall in NUI Galway on 18, 19, 20 & 21 July. Sessions are from 9am - 1pm or 2pm - 6pm each day.

We need 150 people, and all are welcome. Call Volunteer Coordinator, Kady Perry at 091 509700 to sign up today or email to kperry@giaf.ie.
