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.
