15 July - 30 September 2019
Postbox is open!
We received over 400 postcards at our Blessington Street PO Box.
Our team selected 100 postcards
We looked for postcards we could match to our philosophers, and for missives that we found surprising or moving or exciting. There were so many to choose from it was a hard task to pick just 100.
We photographed your postcards
We took a photograph of the 100 postcards.
We posted the postcards to our philosophers
...along with a special edition artist postcard for the reply to be written on.
November 2019 - January 2020
The philosophers wrote their responses
...and sent them back to us...
We photographed the philosophers' responses
...ready to publish them on this website.
Just as we were about to put the replies in the post, the Covid 19 pandemic struck. We kept the postcards safe and sound and waited.
Check your mail!
Life resumed - sort of. We added an Iris Murdoch stamp, and put the answers-on-a-postcard in the post!
Read the postcards!
We have now published all 100 questions and answers on this website for you to explore. We would love to know how you would reply to the questions! You can leave a reply in the comments on each postcard.
