Project Arts Centre


Dublin has long been renowned for its vibrant creative scene, with art, music and literature helping to shape the city into a cultural powerhouse. In keeping with this tradition, Project Arts Centre supports the local creative community by providing a space for the development and presentation of contemporary art.

Based in the Temple Bar area of Dublin, Project Arts Centre consists of two performance spaces and a gallery. The centre is dedicated to protecting the independent sector. This means nurturing the next generation of Irish artists across all forms of the performing and visual arts.

Part of the Dublin arts scene

This multi-disciplinary arts centre supports work across all art forms, ranging from visual art, theatre, dance and music to live art events, talks and discussion groups. The centre also collaborates with several local festivals, including the Dublin Fringe Festival, Dublin Theatre Festival and Dublin Dance Festival.

For nearly five decades, Project Arts Centre has been at the forefront of contemporary artistic practice in Dublin. Generations of artists and audiences have taken part in its programmes, with some relationships stretching back over 30 years. The centre has helped to launch the careers of Liam Neeson, Gabriel Byrne and U2, to name just a few. Internationally renowned artists such as James Coleman and Gerard Byrne have also featured in its exhibitions.

As one of the busiest arts centres in the country, Project Arts Centre presents over 620 events a year, as well as 6 annual exhibitions and close to 40 productions as part of the Project Artists initiative.
