The Irish Shebeen: A Homeless Shelter in the Metaverse
Gillian Godsil and Lisa Gibbons created this virtual haven for users to connect and enjoy Irish hospitality. Lisa Gibbons, Web3 forager and journalist, was motivated to create the Irish Shebeen after discussing the feeling of being “homeless” in the Metaverse. She envisions the virtual pub as a gateway to Irish culture and a platform for diverse creative talent, potentially expanding into other virtual environments.
The Irish Shebeen designed its place for interaction and engagement, mixing gamification with a platform to showcase Irish artists, musicians, poets, dancers and storytellers. Gillian Godsil, co-founder of Blockleaders and renowned Web3 journalist, emphasizes the importance of creating a welcoming space on the Metaverse where people feel at home.
“As a campaigner against homelessness here in Ireland – and a woman whose home was foreclosed by the banks – the idea of being homeless on the internet was shocking. We can’t give everyone a home, but we can give them a place to go and feel welcome and at home.”
