Following a â€˜re-imaginingâ€™ period, The Common Thread CafÃ© in Parnell Street will reopen today, Wednesday, 15th with a new colour scheme and layout. To mark its fourth year in business, the cafÃ© is hosting an art exhibition on the theme of The Journeys we make to coincide with this yearâ€™s Clonmel Junction Festivalâ€™s theme. A selection of works by artists in paint, print and photography are on display in the new bright space, which was re-inaugurated on Tuesday evening with an exhibition launch.
Other events and activities in the cafÃ© include a meditation circle, a weekly African drumming circle, a teenage storycircle and a choral sing-along on Friday, 24th May at 5pm. Other Junction Festival-related activities also take place at regular intervals and forms for its various projects and its trainee and volunteer schemes can be collected and dropped off at the cafÃ© counter.
If you would like to volunteer as a cafÃ© host and have one free morning or afternoon (Tuesday to Friday) per week, please contact the cafÃ© on firstname.lastname@example.org or leave your name and details with the person in charge.
