2ha magazine / Fundit 2015 - last orders
This is it! We're less than 24 hours away from wrapping up our last ever Fundit campaign. We're excited, nervous and just that bit giddy about the thought of reaching our target and getting to work on the year ahead.
But we're not there yet! Though we've been lucky enough to receive funding from many a generous supporter, we're still just that bit short of our final goal.
So if you like what we do and would like to see us do a whole lot more of it, please visit our Fundit page and pick out whichever reward you prefer. Now is your chance to make possible a full programme of talks, tours, publications and general suburban good times!
All the details about our plans for 2015/16, plus the many rewards on offer, can be found on our Fundit page, but should you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch via email, twitter or tumblr.
We hope you'll be able to join us for our final year.
2ha magazine - Fundit 2015
To all our funders, subscribers 'n suburbanistas,
As you may have heard (it's all we talk about these days), 2ha magazine has returned to Fundit for our third and final time.
In 2014, you made sure 2ha could continue as a project, providing us with the funding to keep printing, writing and researching. Without that support, we wouldn't have been able to develop the magazine to what it is today.
We've also been lucky enough to work with some great contributors and to have been supported by a number of public platforms. Without these individuals, we'd have had nothing to say and nowhere to say it.
So we'd like to say thank you to everyone who's been involved with 2ha so far – whether you've written articles, purchased issues or just told your friends how awesome we are :)
Okay, that's the tear-jerker bit over, now here's the really good news...
For our final year, we're planning an extravaganza of suburban good times:
We have 4 new editions of 2ha magazine in the works. Our outline of themes and publications includes:
#11 suburbia + failure
#12 suburbia + power
#13 suburbia + boundary
#14 suburbia + mapping
We have 3 talks, currently being organised and starting in September of this year. Each event will be conceived as a 'live magazine' with four contributors – one each from the world of architecture, academia, art and writing – detailing the ordinary architecture and everyday icons that shape Irish life. This is a new platform for us and by trying this alternative format we hope to spread the suburban joy to an even wider audience. Plus, there'll be free beer and pizza...
We have 2 suburban cycling tours organised as part of Open House Dublin – one in the north and the other in the south side of the city, with specially designed maps of each for everyone who takes part.
And finally, we have 1 great, big launch party planned to say thanks to everyone who's supported this project and who've made this entire programme possible.
So if that sounds good to you, and you'd like to get involved by helping to make all this possible, then please visit our Fundit page at http://fundit.ie/project/2ha-magazine-volume-3.
We have a wide range of rewards available, including annual subscriptions, exclusive membership privileges, one-of-a-kind posters and specially designed tote bags, as well as a complete set of back issues for anyone looking to complete their 2ha collection.
Looking forward to the year ahead.
ps. Apologies for any cross-posting. These messages are sent via Fundit to all our previous funders and as many of you have supported each of our previous campaign there may be a doubling up in terms of emails.
