Dublin City Council, in partnership with the Arts Council is undertaking an exciting research project to explore the provision of arts and cultural infrastructure in the Dublin North-Central area.

The study will seek to explore how artists and arts organisations interact with the local community, identify any existing barriers to participation in the arts, and generate new ideas to improve arts infrastructure for the area in the future.

We recently undertook a survey as part of this research and the survey has closed. If you have any questions regarding the survey please email us at contact@dublinnorthcentral.ie or call us on 1800-010101.


Connecting with Dublin North-Central

Dublin North-Central has become of the fastest growing administrative areas of Dublin City, covering neighbourhoods such as Kilbarrack, Raheny, Belmayne, Clongriffin, Donaghmede, Coolock, Clontarf, Fairview, Darndale, Priorswood and Clare Hall, Artane and Beaumont. Despite a steady growth in resident numbers and community initiatives, the provision of arts and cultural infrastructure in the area remains comparatively lower than other parts of the Dublin.

We want to change that. Starting with this research project.
