Drimnagh “INFORM” Workshop
Friday week the 21st of June 2013, in the St John Bosco Youth Centre on Davitt Road, 15 women will meet for a half day workshop to explore the contribution and value of women voices in the Drimnagh and Dublin South Central community.
This highly practical workshop is being run by Women for Election. The independent networking organisation Drimnagh Forum wants to support and encourage women to take actions together on the issues that impact on their lives at a local level in Drimnagh, in Dublin and at a national level in Ireland. This workshop is designed to assist women to take that step.
The more women involved, the broader the range of perspectives informing the issues and decisions within the group. The Drimnagh Forum were granted funding for this workshop by Dublin City Council through the Dublin Forum back in January 2013.
Who’s it for
The workshop is for any woman living or working in Drimnagh or Dublin 12 or who is active in the Dublin South Central electoral area. In fact you don’t have to be a community activist or local politician. If you have a general interest in how decisions are made at local level on your communities behalf then this workshop is for you.
Or are you interested in national politics and would like to know more about how our political system works. Then this workshop is for you.

Timing of Event
We know that a weekday morning session does not suit everyone. And there will be more workshops arranged for an evening and one for a Saturday morning over the next year. We have also taken on board that more notice is needed….thank you tweeters.
