Abstract

CityWorks was an urban Intervention and associated social event that sought to address the lack of a sense of connection between people, place, the local authority and the service providers in the Markets Area, Dublin 1. The faces of 25 people who made the study area work (the refuse collector, the postman, the parish priest, the local politician etc.) were showcased via giant posters and pasted all around the public realm. The intention was to humanise the anonymous service providers. These posters also depicted a description of the type of service they provided, along with information regarding the associated ‘People Library’ event. At this event visitors could rent out a service provider, like the postman, the city manager or the local storyteller and find out all about the intricacies of their job.

CityWorks was created in collaboration with Designing Dublin.
