Join a team of young people (16-20) working on a radical magazine this autumn in Clondalkin.

This autumn, join a small team of young people working together on a publishing project in Clondalkin. Led by writer Nathan O’Donnell, this team will meet regularly, developing skills in creative writing, journalism, research, photography, editorial and magazine design. Together the team will produce a new radical magazine. Participants will follow in the footsteps of the many artists and activists who have produced these publications in the past, assembling art, writing, and photography, and thinking about how to effect change.

Regular newsroom sessions will be accompanied by occasional workshops with visiting writers, artists, and journalists. There will also be an off-site letterpress printing workshop at the National Print Museum and a two-day workshop on making a protest banner.

This project is open to young people (16-20) from all backgrounds – whether in education or not – living in the Clondalkin area. Please get in touch if you’d like to get involved.

The team will meet on Saturdays from 29 September 2018.

To express interest, please email

Young people of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply; you do not need to have a background in writing or any educational qualification. If you have questions, get in touch, or click here for further details.

The Mill is inspired by the Clondalkin Paper Mill and the legacy of the strikes and occupations of the 1980s.

The Mill is commissioned under IN CONTEXT 4 - IN OUR TIME, South Dublin County Council’s Public Art Programme for 2016-2019 under the Per Cent for Art Scheme.
