Dublin City Council in association with The Arts Council is delighted to announce that Joe
Lee has been selected as Dublin City Council’s Film Maker in Residence.
Joe grew up in Artane, in Dublin 5 in the 1960s and 70s and has lived for the best part of thelast thirty years in Marino, Dublin 3.
From the late 1990s onwards he has worked as a film maker on a series arts based projectswith Dublin communities. The focus of these projects has been to work with local people totell stories of local relevance.
“This residency programme will facilitate me to continue to develop an approach to filmmaking that I have been working on since the mid 1990s. That is, to permit story andactuality in the film process to arise out of a dialogue with people about the reality andexperience of place. The Irish urban story is still a relatively new phenomenon. This is thefirst generation to experience a reflection of contemporary Irish urban life in film, music,literature and visual art. What emerges from these reflections of the contemporary is thatthere is no single way or approach to telling these stories. What I aim to do in my work is towork with people on the basis of mutual trust, in an attempt to find an authentic voice, toarticulate or reveal the reality and patterns of life in places that are, for the most part, just afew miles from where I was born”

> ·> > |·>The Ballymun Oral History Project
by Patricia McBride, community facilitator
'Ballymun in North Dublin is a community under change. In the forty-odd years or so since
the first tenants moved into the gleaming system-built high-rise tower blocks that form the
structural centrepiece of the estate, Ballymun has become a synonym in the public
imagination for all that can go wrong in urban working-class housing estates. And now again
in 2001, the first tenants have moved into housing constructed in Ballymun as part of a
programme of urban regeneration, under which the high rise developments of old will
gradually be demolished and their tenants re-housed in a radically altered Ballymun. It is
envisaged that the new town of Ballymun will be both the symbol and the realisation of the
physical, social and economic regeneration of the area - as one journalist recently termed the
unfolding changes, Ballymun's 'brave new world'.
This is the context in which Ballymun Oral History Project came into being in September2000. Funded by Ballymun Regeneration Ltd and undertaken by Eneclann Ltd., the oralhistory project was a core element of a larger history project which also included adocumentary and an architectural strand. The oral history project was designed by Dr.
Laurence Cox of the Department of Sociology N.U.I. Maynooth, and delivered by Dr. Coxand Ms. Patricia McBride. At the outset the oral history project had four key aims. Thesewere:
• to record and document an oral history of the Ballymun community• to make the research available to the wider community• to enable community-based action in the present, based on an understanding of the
• To create and transfer to community control a viable oral history project
Probably the most unique aspect of the project was its multi-disciplinary approach,combining history, sociology, community development and adult and youth education. Theapproach to the achievement of the project's aims was based on community developmentprinciples of local ownership of and participation in the project, empowerment of localpeople, commitment to community training and the development of locally ownedmanagement structures within the project.'Source
