Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

UpStart: an alternative election poster campaign

"UpStart is a non-profit arts collective which aims to put creativity at the centre of public consciousness during the Irish General Election Campaign in 2011. We plan to do this by reinterpreting the spaces commonly used for displaying election campaign posters in Dublin City." Best thing to come out of this whole ridiculous situation. The poems are my favourites; better than any bullshit election manifesto. (By the way, if anyone starts a Flickr gallery of these posters, please do let me know.) #link
