Printer-friendly version

The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Gerry Breen will launch Dublin City Council’s first Dublin City Public Art Programme on Tuesday 12th April 2011 at 12pm in City Hall, Dublin 2.

The Dublin City Public Art Programme offers new and exciting opportunities for artists to engage with the city through music, theatre, literature, film, dance and visual art.  This programme is designed to encourage interaction between the artists, Dublin City Council and the city’s communities and localities and provides the artists with the chance to present their work to a wide audience.  

Detailed information and briefs for the Public Art Programme will be available online from 13th April 2011 at www.dublincitypublicart.ie


“The arts are a vital way of promoting our identity and culture both at home and abroad.  This Programme gives artists an opportunity to interact with the city and its citizens through their artwork.  I know that it will bring greater creativity and originality to our Capital city”

said the Lord Mayor.


Dublin City Council’s Public Art Manager Ruairí Ó Cuív believes that the programme offers artists

“opportunities to respond to the city in ways that are reflective of the current breadth of artistic practice while also enabling the general public opportunities to relate to and engage with the programme”
