Culture Club connects people to museums, galleries, libraries and other cultural venues in a fun and easy way. Through Culture Club, we are inviting people to get involved, broadening the reach of culture in Dublin to as many Dubliners as possible. Our Project Manager will accompany groups and individuals from all over Dublin to a range of Cultural venues throughout the year. Culture Club begins with a tour of an exhibition, given by a knowledgeable tour guide, often the curator of the exhibition, and ends with a Tea & Chats session. This is a special chance to meet new people and experience cultural places in a relaxed way and is a great opportunity for us to learn from these experiences.
