The Make-Dock-Cafe-Pretty Team

Dock Cafe is beautiful.  Somehow, that big concrete warehouse we moved into 8 months ago has become a home from home, a safe space, a place of welcome and friendship and laughter and life.  I’m storing up some tales to tell you soon of some of the conversations and good news stories to have happened in that wonderful room – but for now (it’s a Sunday night and I’m bushed) let me just say it again: Dock Cafe is beautiful.

Of course part of the fun of the place is that it can always be a little bit more beautiful – and that’s where the Hive Mind comes in.  They’re a bunch of arty, creative, boundlessly imaginative people who meet from time to time to brainstorm ideas for the physical space of the cafe – and then when they’ve finished brainstorming (and imbibed enough caffeine), they pick up a drill, a paintbrush or a piece of chalk and get to work!

Things like constantly adding colour to anything that looks a bit too grey…

Or adding extra signage to point people in the right direction…

Or making the whole place brighter (the ‘Waste Titanic’ now glows from within!)…

Or helping customers understand how the whole ‘Honesty Box’ thing works…

Interested in joining them for their occasional sessions of ‘playing house’ in the biggest, best blank space in Belfast?  Just get in touch!
