Description image 200 x 134

CityArts is committed to a policy of participatory arts practice in contemporary society and as such, CityArts’ programme of work is created in collaboration with communities of place and/or interest, realised in context at various locations across the city of Dublin.

CityArts is also home to The Archive, a ’living archive’ which charts the history of CityArts and its involvement with the development of community arts in Ireland.

Having moved through a succession of buildings since its founding in 1973, CityArts has recently secured a new home on Bachelor’s Walk in Dublin’s city centre.

Currently working from a temporary office base, CityArts will move into its new home, after reconstruction works are complete in early 2009.
