I HEARD ABOUT Limerick's annual Lifelong Learning Festival via a direct message on Twitter and a text last year. I heard about it running this year via RSS and we're going.
The festival has been running for several years and it is chock-full of interesting events [23 page PDF] that most of my local Facebook friends have never seen. We're going to several events this year because the topics intrigue me and our five-year-old daughter.
I hope to attend the miLKlabs (Limerick hackerspace) events this year. They have an Open Evening on Tuesday (18 March) and an Arduino workshop led by Mikael Fernstrom on Saturday (23 March) at the University of Limerick.
I want to see Gabriela Avram's Urban Gardening event, showcasing the UL Community Roof Garden on Saturday and then see what kind of geocaching Paul Campbell has running on the UL campus that day.
I want to be at Ground Zero with Sharon Slater from Limerick’s Life for a Tweasure Hunt in the city on Sunday, March 24, 2013. We need to juggle some family calendars to have all this happen but it sounds promising because in addition to the gumshoe fin there's action with Lou Dennehy, the organiser of Stitch’n Bitch Sunday meet-ups is involved in a a Sunday afternoon of learning and sharing, starting at 2pm.
