See Through Café
Art and Technology
Due to Covid regulation, places are limited and booking is required.
This month we speak to Yasky, a poet and programmer. He speaks to us on balancing the life between an artist and a scientist, the connection between art and technology in his world and how he merges both.
The See Through Café is a free and open space where we allow to flourish conversations about art and diversity in and across Ireland, through the eyes of artists and art enthusiasts. The See Through Café is curated by members of the WeareGriot Collective: Dagogo Hart, Felispeaks and Samuel Yakura. It is presented in collaboration with Rua Red and supported by Creative Ireland South Dublin and South Dublin County Arts Office.
