North Central



“Our parks, our coast, our biodiversity”

In Dublin North Central, projects will be developed with community groups of all ages from Clontarf, Raheny, Coolock, Artane, Fairview and Marino in partnership with the National Library of Ireland and Dublin City Council. Local parks and the coastline – and how they are used, socially and environmentally – are very important to the locals of these areas. Visual art, music and dance/movement will be used to focus on the natural environment and how to better link people through the spaces that surround them, inspired by Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane’s exhibition The Ocean After Nature, and the rich archives of the National Library of Ireland.
