Geek Out and Speak Out, a nerdy quiz to raise money and awareness for the stand against sexual violence and rape.
Come and get your geek on with us, while supporting a worthy charity. We’ll be upstairs in Robert Reade Bar and Cafe on Saturday the 27th of May. (I’m sorry to say the space we are using is upstairs and the venue does not have a lift, so accessibility may be an issue for some attendees)
17.30: Hosting pre-quiz social games
19.00: Get our quiz going.
A table (of up to 4 players) costs €40.
All profits are being donated to the Rape Crisis Network Ireland (http://www.rcni.ie/)
We are also hosting a bake sale and a raffle! (get in touch if you want to contribute baked goods or crafted items!)
At the moment we have 15 tables available for reservation for the quiz. This reservation will last until 18.45, at which time it will be released back into wild. You can book here! https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/geek-out-and-speak-out-table-of-4-booking-tickets-34390954270

Trigger Warning: Rape, Assault
This event was prompted by the recent news about the assault at Arcadecon in 2015, you can read an official statement here. http://www.the-arcade.ie/2017/04/arcadecon-2015-official-statements/
As a community we have to open dialogues about sexual violence and rape. We have to take action to ensure the safety of our attendees. We know that many members of our community are outraged and upset and need a channel with which to take action. This is an attempt to offer our support and encourage our community to speak out and stand up for each other.
