As we figure out a new future for ourselves and the generations to come we take a moment to ask what is best about now? And what do we want to change?

In the far reaches of the arctic is a small island called Svalbard, and underneath the ice hides one of the most important rooms in the world. It is a vault, a seed bank, holding millions of seed samples with the potential to regrow crops and plants in almost every country. We know that we are at a turning point in human history and so we have made how to rebuild and regrow, should we need… but what are the seeds of culture and society that we would want to protect for the future? What ideas, people, places, memories or hopes would we want to put into a community vault for Ballymun? Over eight weeks artist Maeve Stone has collaborated with Ballymuners to answer those questions and create the first submissions to the Community Vault.

The Community Vault Project includes collaborations with artists Kasia Kaminska with a focus on local weed life and reframing nature in urban spaces, and Kaethe Burt-O’Dea who gave a workshop on Rain Planters and nature based flood solutions.
