Volunteer at Cauldron of Smithfield

Happenings Founded in 2009, Happenings run low impact, socially responsible events in public spaces throughout Ireland. Since its inception, we have focused in particular on animating city spaces with creative and spontaneous events around Dublin, Cork and Limerick cities that include open-air cinema screenings, yoga in the park, music gigs, inspiring talks, and family days out. On fine weather days we organise instant outdoor cinema & creative events in parks and public spaces. There is always a focus on staging socially responsible events and we operate a strict leave-no-trace policy. There is always an inclusive and friendly atmosphere and we try to build a strong sense of community & foster the public’s engagement with their city. 
 
We are back with one of the last Happenings events of the year and we are going out with a BANG and we are looking for a gang of volunteers who can help us bring this spooky event to life!

It's set to be a really exciting evening festival for the locals and not so local, kids and grown-up kids but as always we simply can't do it without the help of our
