11.2.1 Introduction

The enhancement and promotion of Dublin as a ‘City of Character and Culture’, promoting an active artistic and cultural community at city-wide and neighbourhood levels is central to making a vibrant city that is an attractive destination for tourists, the residents of the city and the creative industries.

Reinforcing existing cultural quarters, nurturing new cultural initiatives that support emerging cultural quarters and enabling access to cultural development at a local level are essential to developing a city’s cultural wealth.
