It has allowed us as a Cultural Institution to connect with communities, and to add their unique stories to the Library’s Collections where they will be preserved and made available to future generations. This project is really something to be proud of.

I have many memorable moments…the project was a great experience for me. It was fantastic and inspiring and I am proud of my own part in the creative and directive process and honoured to walk away with new friendships in an amazing community.
It was great to see the smiles on their faces

By bringing local groups to cultural buildings in the capital and engaging with local schools on projects that would inspire them to understand the nature and culture around them, you’d have to say it was a great success and I think more good things will come from this.
I hope the National Neighbourhood Project can be a template for other regions, to break down barriers to artistic and cultural participation.

Culture is an important part in building neighbourhood spirit and it is an ambition of Dublin City Council to continue to give the opportunity for people to learn and participate in the arts in their neighbourhood in all parts of the city.
