Pageant title; Cead Mile Future
Inspired the a vision of young people from Dublin’s north inner city Artastic create a pageant that embraces the Dublin City of the future as a visual and emotional place of welcome with the most unusual and interesting places to visit. The young people want their city to be a place of welcome to all. They hoped that Irish eyes would always be smiling and that we would greet their guests with a warm heart and a hug. Their ideas bring you on a tourist journey from Moore Street through the city up to Dublin Zoo in a very childlike colourful version of the future.
