Opening 31 May! DisPatch pop-up post office

DisPatch is a pop-up post office in Enniscorthy.  Drop in and send a free postcard, to anywhere in the world! Each of the postcards represents an Enniscorthy-based community group.

DisPatch is a project by artists Becks Butler, Astrid Newman and Ciara Roche, who were selected to develop a public-facing art installation, funded by Wexford County Council’s, M11 Gorey to Enniscorthy, PPP Per Cent for Art Scheme. Over the past few months, the artists have been meeting with Enniscorthy-based community groups and collecting objects and stories. Objects, activities and snapshots of the groups in action have been photographed and printed onto postcards, which will be on display in the pop-up post office. The stories have been collected and compiled into short audio pieces, available to listen to on headphones. Visitors are invited to come into the post office, enjoy a cuppa and select a postcard, write it and pop it in a post box there and then.

DisPatch will be open from the 31 May to 3 June (11am–6pm) at 11 Castle Street, Enniscorthy.
