My name's Jamie Cooke, and I am the RSA's Fellowship Networks Manager for Ireland, Scotland and NE England. My job is to support the development of the RSA in Ireland and to explore ideas that Fellows might have, so feel free to fire any thoughts or questions my direction!
I am based in Glasgow, where I live with my wife Cat and son Ben.
Hi, Matt Johnston. I'm working as a Facilitator for Digital Circle - the sectoral representative for the Digital Media and Creative sector in Northern Ireland. My job is to help develop the sector and work towards the digital "commerces and manufacture" which can come from this.
Personally I really want to further Northern Ireland as a desirable destination not only for tourists but also for life. I chose to stay here in the province and I want to make it even better than it already is, despite our long and sometimes eventful history.
I am based in Belfast though can often be found throughout the province.
Hello from Denis Stewart. I've had the role of Secretary for RSA Ireland since October '10 and am enjoying working with other members of the RSA Ireland Committee to develop the Association's activity in this region. I'm keen to explore ways of realising the potential that RSA has to contribute creatively, with others in civic society, to the social and cultural transformation that's needed in our part of the global community.
Until a few years ago, I worked in support of school education in various parts of the UK, most recently in Scotland. Now in the first year of my 7th decade [!], I find myself dividing waking time between continued work in educational contexts, involvement with Shared Interest, an ethical investment co-operative that supports fair trade businesses in the developing world [ http://www.shared-interest.com/ ], trying to be an 'activist Fellow' within RSA, and studying and reflecting on philosophical theology. And, occasionally, there are poetically productive moments ...
Hi Matt my name is vittorio Cirefice (Victor) i am an indipendent artist ,been professional for nearly 40 years now, my main agenda and involvement with the rsa is land use and sustainability in our present situation here in n.i.i i am the opposite of most people in the rsa in that i avoid technology, the camera the computer the t v etc but my interaction is that i bounce ideas arround and reflect a possition of change from grass roots level rather than from an organisational approach.
looking forward to seeing future debates
Good to see you joining the online group, Victor. I look forward to conversation, face-to-face - maybe next Thursday evening, if you'd like to come along to the dinner do. See: http://rsafellowship.com/group/rsaireland/forum/topics/whats-changi... .
All the best.
