The public is invited to a public meeting, Monday May 14th, 6.30pm, The Little Museum of Dublin, 15 St. Stephens Green to Save Hume St.
A campaign was launched last year to save the former Hume Street hospital, D2, vandalised by thieves – they stole copper, lead and damaged a number of architectural features.
This iconic building is now for sale at a fraction of the original cost and it would be a tragedy to let it go in a €3 million fire sale without first considering alternatives. Save Hume St. believe it is an important cultural asset due to its city centre location and history as a publicly accessible building. To date there has been €30 million of public money invested in this building.
This meeting will take the form of a Public Debate that will highlight the potential uses of this space as a cultural and public amenity. One of our speakers is Economist Finbarr Bradley, author of “Capitalizing on Culture; Competing on Difference”. Save Hume Street is proposing a combination of State, philanthropic and private investment to acquire and restore it.
