   North Inner City Drugs Task Force - Dublin, Ireland - DAA


To mark Irish AIDS Day, and to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of Philadelphia, Dublin AIDS Alliance is holding a special fundraising screening of the film at The Sugar Club on Tuesday 11th June, 8:00pm (Doors open 7:00pm). Tickets are €10 and available at the door on the night.

First released in 1993, and starring Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington, Philadelphia was one of the first mainstream Hollywood movies to acknowledge HIV and AIDS, homosexuality, and homophobia. Tom Hanks won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in the film, while the song "Streets of Philadelphia" by Bruce Springsteen won the Academy Award for Best Original Song.

Men's Mental Health Week is a 32 county initiative taking place from June 10th - 16th. Would you like to find out more about it, maybe even organise or take part in an event? Well, our next' Food for Thought' lunchtime series on Tuesday 21st May will be a talk given by John Cantwell from Sli An Chroi about this awareness raising week. John is involved in the organisation of Men's Health Week, which involves over 40 different organisations. John will also share information on the men's work he is engaged in within the community and the rising culture of grassroots Men's Groups.

This event is free and will be held in our office 117/118 North King St, and a light lunch will be provided. The talk will start at 1o'clock, to book a place just email me. Space is limited so book asap.

This could provide an opportunity to explore ways of engaging more local men in the activities of your organisation and perhaps supporting them in finding ways to respond to the exclusion and marginalisation experienced by increasing numbers of men in our community.

 ICON and Community Technical Aid invite you to attend the

Dublin Inner City Employment & Enterprise Services Expo

Wednesday 19th June 2013
Gresham Hotel (O’Connell Suite)
Time 10.30-12.30

With the rising numbers of unemployed and the increasing difficulties people are faced with when trying to find employment opportunities, a need has been identified to hold an employment & enterprise services expo.

The idea is to hold an event where groups providing supports to the unemployed can exhibit and advertise their services. This is not intended to be a jobs fair but a showcase of the range of employment and enterprise supports available within the inner city such as the provision of training and education, job clubs, social welfare support etc.

We hope that you will make your participants aware of the event and display the attached poster (click here) and flyer(click here) in your organisation.

Entrance is free
