February Quickshot

Musicians Newsletter                

Hi there,

We wanted to drop you a quick email to let you know about an important opportunity to make your voice heard in Dublin City Council Art’s Office’s plans to develop a ‘creative campus’ in the Liberties area of Dublin 8.
This is an open call for feedback on ongoing infrastructural developments now and into the future, and it is across all artistic disciplines. The deadline is Wednesday March 3rd.

We ask you to please fill out the survey, as a musician, and “have your say” at the link below, so that the SPECIFIC NEEDS of jazz and creative improvised musicians are represented as much as possible. Remember that practitioners across visual arts, theatre, dance and other artforms will all be having their say too!

The lack of dedicated spaces for jazz has been one of the biggest issues in our industry & was a major takeaway from our 2020 Musicians Survey, so it's vital we add as many voices to this process as we can muster.

Although we believe a rising tide lifts all boats, we are equally aware that Dublin focused news can be alienating to those musicians around the rest of Ireland, so we've included a survey below where you can let us know where you're located. That way, we can directly send local opportunities to the musicians who can benefit from them the most without filling up your inbox if you can't. 

All the best,
Ken, Aoife, Adam and Caitríona

Have Your Say! DCC Arts Office is seeking input on the need for Artist Workspaces in Dublin

The Dublin City Council Arts Office is looking for existing and emerging artists to participate in a research study that will explore the current and future requirements of artist workspaces in Dublin.

Dublin City Council is consulting on the feasibility of ambitious plans to bring forward a “creative campus” in the heart of the Liberties area of Dublin 8.

The proposals are part of an Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (URDF) regeneration project that aims to deliver new workspace for artists within the city. In total three initial council owned sites have been identified, at Bridgefoot Street and at 8 and 9 Merchants Quay (the site of the former Little St Anthony’s Theatre).

The vision of the project is to jointly develop the sites and properties, and partnering with existing organisations in Dublin 8, such as the existing NCAD site, to form a campus for the arts and cultural sector that will also deliver new community facilities and public spaces.

The lack of spaces to create in the city was a major takeaway from our 2020 Musicians Survey, so it's vital we add as many voices to this process as we can muster.

This survey is open to artists from all artforms, so the more voices of jazz musicians represented, the greater likelihood that the needs of our community will be met. It will only take a couple of minutes to complete and could have direct benefits to your artistic career in the near future. Please join us and make your voice heard! 

Please note the deadline for feedback is Wednesday 3rd March 2021.

Have your say!

Although we believe a rising tide lifts all boats, we are equally aware that Dublin focused news can be alienating to those musicians around the rest of Ireland, so we've included a survey below where you can let us know where you're located.

We want to be able to send you location specific opportunities in the future, such as artist residencies or county council funding, so please help us out by letting us know where you are located.
