The MART Academy

While MART as a collective has been about since 2006, their physical presence in Dublin is still relatively new. With their first studios in the old fire station only opening, last year, their empire has quickly grown, encompassing 3 different buildings, a multitude of studios, exhibition spaces, a market, cafe and performance venue and now MARTcademy, a one stop shop for budding, developing and established artists. Covering a wide range of artistic and creative disciplines, there’s everything from an intro to turkish art to singing for the terrified. And they’re such sweeties, they even promise tea and cake for participants (let’s be honest, that’s what we all want!)So try something new this autumn, and head towards Rathmines for a little MARTucation! / Beccy Fitzpatrick

Dublin Unpublished

Conor Horgan is the embodiment of the idea that the best way to perfect your art is by simply doing it as often as possible. As a friend of his, I'm treated to the daily delight of a series of images he posts from past and present on his facebook page. Whether it's the staged or the observed, he brings an unerring quality and candour to what passes before his lens. As an exceedingly well connected man across all walks of life, Conor also happens to be an amazing documentarian of Dublin and its people. The Queen of Ireland, his highly anticipated portrait of Panti, reaches fruition next year but before this, we can appreciate this series of portraits. Whether it's a memory trigger of the late great Jonathan Philbin Bowman or the timely beauty of our cover this week, Conor's work is a masterclass which you should all attend. / Michael McDermott

fundraiser

Bring the Toys

Remember in school when you used to lovingly curate shoeboxes of yo-yos and books to be sent to underprivileged children at Christmas? You would wrap the box in fancy paper, stuff it with festive crepe paper and feel good, and whole, and generous. As you harumph into adulthood, apply the usual energy you reserve for ignoring chuggers into buying a few presents for kids, and head to the Back Page where prizes means seasonal treats, comedy and DJs, and a lot of fun. The crew are looking to brighten Christmas for kids in Temple Street Hospital, so bring books, games, CDs, and toys but not furry animals or cuddlies. It's been away for a few years, but a new bar needs new traditions, and it looks like this'll be the Back Page's one. / Kate Coleman

Timbuktu

Abderrahmane Sissako’s Timbuktu is just one of several highlights remaining as we reach near the close of this year’s French Film Festival, an important balancing post-colonial pick, and nice counter-programming for anybody tiring of the Parisian haute/petite bourgeoisie. A contender for this year’s Palme d’Or, and winner of the François Chalais Prize for journalism in film, Timbuktu depicts the occupation of the titular Malian city and the lives of those under the rule of religious fundamentalist jihadists, their reaction and rebellion to the terror of an unjust, harrowing regime. Sissako dealt deftly with colonialism and capitalist neo-imperialism in his 2006 Bamako, and that, and the fact that Timbuktu may not return to the IFI until May, is reason enough to delay an hour your sesh plans to fade/crossfade to the Late Late Toy Show. / Ross McDonnell

Aunty Ben

LGBT children's theatre exists. It's out there, just as a growing LGBT community is. Yet fear not, God fearing citizens, Aunty Ben is not the sexual awakening the bores and snores might have you believe. It's the brainchild of Super Paua Productions and the very articulate Sian Ní Mhuirí. The story's catalyst is 9 y/o Tracey's Aunty Ben, who is a drag queen. Tracey's friends are puzzled by 'Aunty' Ben and Tracey, who loves her lively relative, also begins to shy away. But nippers have an innate sense of fairness, so the story don't end there. The real theme here is acceptance and diversity. The script lightly uses gender roles, family structures and courage to craft this wider point. Young audience members are allowed to shape their own conclusions and btw there is no mention of Aunty Ben's sexuality or gender. / Georgia

The Possibilities are Endless

Edwyn Collins of 80s punk band Orange Juice, narrates in his moving documentary his stroke suffered in 2005 and subsequent difficulty with memory and speech— its touching title one of the four phrases Collins could repeat during his rehabilitation. But this is not a VH1 Behind the Music special. Directed by James Hall and Edward Lovelace, its haunting prologue, with the sensitive wistfulness of The Tree of Life, underlying body-horror psychodrama of Under the Skin, and full-of-wonder Ratcatcher-aesthetic, immediately establishes a certain tone, and the rest of the film, more straightforward, retains this lyricism and sensory emphasis as it chronicles Collins’s, and wife Grace's, inspiring and stirring story. The first screening of The Possibilities are Endless on Friday will, as well, be followed by an appearance and Q&A with Collins./ Ross McDonnell

screening

Magnum PI

Oh! We're going to Hawaii...Oh! Hanging off of Tom Selleck's tash. Yep, Generator and Le Cool sat down to chat about doing a screening and party in honour of Movember, and this writer was immediately seized with the image of the second baby in Three Men and a Baby. Selleck's busy upper-lip. What better then, we thought, than to celebrate Movember with a Magnum PI screening? Lord knows Hawaiian shirts need an accessory, and a Mo Bro sure knows how to provide. After some sleuthing, the exuberant Chewy Chewerson will take to the decks with some disco tunes, and have you committing murder on the dancefloor. This ain't no mid-afternoon re-run on BBC2 y'all, this will blow your minds, Magnum stylee. / Kate Coleman

GIRLS NAMES

Joy Division, The Cure, Wire, Echo and the Bunnymen, Johnny Marr, Crystal Stilts, The Horrors. Girls Names wear their influences on their sleeves and that's just fine by us. 'The New Life' was one of our favourite albums of 2013 and we're excited to hear what new sounds the band have been cooking up on the road. The Joinery should be a suitably claustrophobic setting for the Belfast band's heavy yet strangely bright, shimmering sound. While largely guitar driven, synths add a welcome textural layer to the jangling strings and motorik rhythms. Cathal Cully's vocals are monotonous, muffled and (when we can make out what he's saying) morbid; perfect. Seems like the perfect soundtrack to a cold November night. Ravelled jumper sleeves pulled over hands, intense head-bobbing, hair falling into eyes…Let's go. / Mr & Mrs Stevens

Dead Celebrities

Who's your favourite dead celebrity? Quick answers from the Le Cool office include Dennis Hopper, Edie Sedgewick, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Heath Ledger, Whitney Houston, and River Phoenix, but who's yours? It's just a crass way of asking who you'd like to revive for a dinner party, really...Anyway, Hunt & Gather put out for submissions to this loose, coffin-free brief, and the results will be being displayed in Molloy & Dowling, all thirty-five of them. Will someone go wacko with glitter for Jacko, or send out a 'wanted' poster for the late Tony Soprano? Who knows, either way, there'll be hip-as-heck illustrators such as Aoife Dooley exhibiting, so you might just get a cheap as chips €10 print as an homage to your late faves. / Kate Coleman
