WAYS WE HELP.

The coffee club

We want as many side project meet-ups to happen as possible, whether we’re present or not. So we’ve set up a community of creatives who meet one-on-on and in small groups to bash about ideas.

the breakfast club

We filled some of the city’s best restaurants with creative types to knock heads on ideas. We invited some guest speakers too, such as Maser, Jim Fitzpatrick, Vanessa Power, Chris Judge, Tony Cantwell and Aoife Dooley.

the supperclub

People said creatives weren’t morning people. So we added a supper club to the mix, and hosted it in Nutbutter. It had food, beers, ideas and a new speed-dating format that we threw into the mix.

The Podcast

We made a podcast to provide some inspiration for your daily commute. It’s us chatting to some cool people with side projects, talking about some cool ones we found online, and pitching a few ideas of our own.

The OTHER STUFF

We’ll pretty much do anything to help people with their side projects. We’ve held workshops, hosted panel discussions, and we someday dream of a creative retreat. Watch out for the seaside project!.

our story

To hold each other accountable to their own side projects, friends Caomhán & Sam began meeting a couple of mornings a week in coffee shops around Dublin. People seemed to like the simple idea and soon a the side project breakfast club was born.

Side projects tell you more than any CV or portfolio. When looking to hire people I’m looking for two things, talent and side projects.

creative spaces

The side project was founded on a few simple staples, namely great food, great conversation and great coffee. To ensure this tradition lives on we curate a list of venues in each city that we suggest to our members.
