We have now said goodbye to 22 Blackpitts, our home since 2015. The space has served us well. We had many great events and projects build while there. At this point, we also say goodbye to Dublin 8. We have been in this area of the city since TOG 2.0 in 2010. This area and the wider community have been great supporters to us. It has allowed our little group to grow up to a large members organization that supports a wide range of activities and people to have a creative outlet.
Check out our photo gallery to see all the effort that went into the clear-out and move.
Introducing TOG 4.0, our new home in Bluebell.
We are delighted to announce that we have secured a home for TOG 4.0. We have taken a lease on a 335 square meter industrial unit in Bluebell at Unit 1B Motor City, just off Kylemore Road. We are about an 8-minute walk from Kylemore Luas stop and there is also plenty of car parking available.
Keeping things retro our first photo of the space is taken on a 1970s Polaroid sx-70 instant camera.
The unit is completely empty, so we now have a blank canvas to build a wonderful space for ourselves and our community of hackers and makers. We are always open to new members so if you would like to be a part of building TOG 4.0 please let us know!
We want to thank all our members and the community for their help in finding a new space and a home for the next few years. You can check out our gallery for more photos of TOG 4.0.
TOG has been in existence for over 12 years now, providing Dublin with a space to craft, hack, make and socialize. Watch out for a mega opening event when COVID permits. We are all really looking forward to running events and working on projects again.
TOG 3.0 is coming to an end! We are giving away loads of good stuff, and any donation (big or small) will go to the moving and fit-out costs for TOG 4.0. Items range from kitchen paraphernalia, craft supplies, electronics, and office furniture. We want to avoid as much sending it to landfill.
We will be open for people to drop by on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th of July from 11:00 am till 6:00 pm.
Please share with anyone you think would be interested.
Social distancing rules apply, you must wear a mask and the number of people admitted into the building will be limited in line with current restrictions.
We are delighted to team up with the Festival of Curiosity to bring you all an Air Quality sensor workshop. The Festival of Curiosity is Dublin’s annual festival of science, arts, design, and technology. We will be introducing the power of the Sensor.Community and how to join this great CitizenScience project. For details of the event follow the link below.
