Dublin City Council is delighted to be publishing its Cultural Strategy 2016-2021.
Culture has been positioned centrally in Dublin City Council’s corporate policy, in recognition of the role culture has in all aspects of city life including the economy, education, tourism and community.
This new emphasis on culture has its roots in Dublin’s bid for the European Capital of Culture 2020. While not shortlisted for the bid, the widespread public engagement process to develop the Bid highlighted that Dublin has huge cultural strength, ambition and energy waiting to be tapped.
Dublin City Council’s cultural strategy recognises that Culture is central to human development.
This strategy for culture in the city, builds on the values set down in the bid for the City of Culture, and contains commitments to implement a series of programmes which are ambitious in seeking social changes through culture, new relationships and partnerships.
Dublin City Council’s cultural strategy recognises that Culture is central to human development. Culture is also central to Dublin’s quality of life and its relationship with Ireland, Europe and the rest of the world. The strategy sets out an ambitious programme – Dublin’s Culture Connects – which is aimed at long term impacts through partnerships, alerting the public that something new is happening.
